OEM or Retail DVD burner

Hi there

Am going to buy the LG GSA4163 super multi drive and was wondering about OEM or retail.

I get that OEM will be just the drive no software or cables etc and the retail pack will have this but what about firmware updates?

Will an OEM drive be able to have its firmware updated?

Cheers all

"Will an OEM drive be able to have its firmware updated?"

No reason why not as the drive will be physically identical, the differences are as you've listed.

No difference at all

Just no cables as you say

Firmware updates work no problem

No point in spending more money than you need to...:-)

I recently purchased an oem LG Combo unit, and on delivery it came with everything. Possibly a mistake by the retailer, but they said no!.
