ok, I am just trying to get an idea of the worth of these drives. I have a supplier who purchased an assload of rejected phillips drives, but get this, they were rejected by M$ quality assurance cause they read CD-RW/DVD-R/W disks. Their loss, our gain. They have a little wear & tear from shipping, I will try to get some pics uploaded but I wanted to see how much you guys thought they were worth.

oh I forogot to mention that part, it does not include the faceplate so your old face plate would have to replace it.

Yes, the correct firmware is installed.

well $55 is the cost of the unit, then they are $9 shipped each making it $64. then there are paypal/credit card fees

well if its 65 shipped + the profit you want = around 75-80...then don't expect to make a lot of profit...samsungs go for only 10-20 more, and people are more proned to get samsungs for only 10 dollars more than what your rate is at!

Just trying to help you!!
