£15.85 including VAT (plus postage)
It is the model you want, and is supplied with three faceplates, black, beige and silver so it will match whatever colour computer you like.

It is a terrific drive, not too noisy and fast and accurate for ripping.

Yes there are differences between the AAR and AAR Pro, unfortunaly we have tested only the AAR Pro, i don't know if you can buy now the AAR version, some people like it somewhat more than the AAR Pro, i guess it will take sometime for AOpen to please all users

The Links do not link to the Page of the AOPEN 1648 AAR but on the page of the AOPEN 1648 AAP. Same with the Pro Link.

Hi
There is a problem of availability of the Aopen 1648 aap pro at the moment as you have found, although plenty of the 1648 aap. This could be due to dealer's wishing to reduce the stock level's of the latter or some manufacter's whim.
The difference between the two is marginal & down to the fact that the pro does not have headphone socket/volume or next track button ( allowing one or two tweaks inside )
As I see it you can either get the 1648 or try to get a dealer to order the pro you. 
Whether it would be worth the wait for the is difficult as the difference in practice is marginal . 
It would appear in the not too distant future that many if not all manufacter's will stop producing dvd rom drive's as they will no longer be viable ( at the moment dvd rom drive £15 typical dvdrw drive £30 plus ) as sale's of dvd rom drive's fall & dvdrw drive's rise.

Hi
I have been informed by a mate who has the Aopen 1648 aap pro that the drive he has will rip at 6x>16x
The non pro appears to rip at 5x>10x
Both sets of figures are dependent on media
The tweaks are two components on the drive's board are of a higher grade (allowing quicker/better error correction)
No is the answer to the question regarding overclockers ( If the illustration is supposed to be an accurate representation of the item, what you are shown is an Aopen 1648 aap. )
N.B. My mate's just rang me to say that the pro is not only quicker, but has lower niose levels due to improved damping.
Enjoy !

Hi
That's alright m8
The Pioneer 109 is good although a lot of folk's prefer Nec's 3520a ( both based on  Nec's new chip ) as there is more support/mod's around
I've used both but prefer Nec's 3540a, have a look here
http://www.cpluse.com/Module/Show.aspx?id=1894
You could also consider BenQ 1640 take a look
http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/193
( available in Europe ) so hopefully not too long to wait in UK, or LG 4163b a longer wait anticipated here though.
N.B. When you see a new 107 it's price is often more than that for the 109
Have you thought of using the 107 for ripping, & if not why not
T o get the best out of the 107 try

you said the nec has "as there is more support/mod's around" what do you mean that i thought a writer was just a writer what can a mod nec do that a mod 109 cant???? why is it better drive the nec

will the  LG 4163b  be a writer or just a rom also why is it better


also whast the diffrence between these drives the Pioneer DVR-109XLA and the Pioneer DVR-109 ????

thanks for all this help but very interesting

Hi
If you goto http://gradius.rpc1.org/  you'll find a f/w patch that not only makes it region free but also riplock Why?
Basically your107 is set to a region & locked ( locking means the drive will rip at say 5x>8x ) Manufacter's do this they say to cut down on errors
Unlocking a drive lets it rip at say 6x>12x or even in theory 6x>16x depending on the drive ( difference 12x &16x on typical DVD is only about 30 sec as the high speeds are only peaks )
So if your happy with the 107 you can upgrade f/w make it region free + riplock thereby improving it's flexability & performance
Originally people used a reader + a writer because of cost, now alot of folk's use two writers
At present as far as I know ther is no f/w available to do this on the 109
This is not the case with Nec there are several patches around even for the latest drive 3540a
The LG 4163b like any other dvdrw can be used as a reader or writer ( although there are patches to make this region free )
ther is no riplock as far as I know (meaning ripping speed 5x>8x )
For writing either the Pioneer or the LG would be fine
But for reading if speed is important to you, you'll be better off with either a riplock or aDVD Rom
As your happy with your 107 I thought you could try the f/w unlocking it & concentrate on getting a dual layer burner
This would mean saving some pennies ( as you'd no longer need a DVD Rom ) or you get a more exspensive burner
Difference 109 /XL try this http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=12802

but thanks for the help anyone know where i can get one


Believe me, the drive I referred to at the Scan website is the Pro version. I know, because I have bought one. from there, and it is definitely the Pro. The none-Pro version is no longer manufactured, so the chances are, any Aopen 1648 AAP you see advertised is the Pro version.
