Yes, I realize there's another thread on this burner asking the same question, but please read on...
Well, I bit on a 9-bucks-after-rebate deal and am looking at one of these sitting in a box as a backup drive. But I was curious as to who the OEM is? Usually, the Khypermedias are rebadged BenQ's, but this one doesn't appear to be. The box shows what appears to be a BenQ drive, but the one I got is slightly different. It doesn't have the "seamless link" logo on the drive tray and has a slightly different front bezel.
I haven't installed it, so I can't see what Device Manager says about it.
The drive doesn't say where it was made (the box says China, but the box also shows a different drive, too!), but here are some clues:
S/N label says:
Factory Code 9
There's no FCC ID, they just claim type acceptance.
There's also a small white sticker right next to the power connector that says: D03H015474
