For what it's worth, you can get them refurbished from Plextor,
supposedly, for about US$95 for a SCSI cd-rw of some sort. That's
probably the best price I've found on them. The only reason I didn't
get one instead of the Sony drive I finally settled on was that they
didn't answer my email, and I really didn't feel like playing telephone
games trying to find the right number ;)
