How can you be getting this drive for $140, especially before shipping? Did you purchase it for 95? If so, this converts to $158.004, before shipping. According to this page, the price is 95 and it is a "June Special Offer."

"damn its cheap... about $140 US after shipping"

Shipping to Canada is 25.00, for a total of 120.00 for the DVD burner and shipping . Your total then comes out to $199.584 when converted to US dollars.

I was just wondering how you were able to get it so cheap so I could save $60 myself. Sorry if I seemed rude.

You could buy from AVLogic where the the same drives are only $158.00 and shipping is much cheaper since they are North American based (only $11.62 to my U.S. location). This would save you $20 and you wouldn't have to worry about overseas shipping.

All apologies.
