Help needid in finding a DVD-writer (Pioneer A08)

Hello all,
I wonder if you fine lot could help out a fellow man in need.
I'm on the market for a new dvd writer which is being paid for as a birthday present from the other week

I've found one i like a pionner A08, trouble is I cant find for the life of me anywhere in the uk that will sell me the pesky thing.
Many places have the 108 (oem version of the same drive) for around 60 squid.
Just the retail version has some neat features the oem does not, for one thing a much nicer bezel on the front but also alot more sound dampening stuff. Around a 30% decrease in noise according to there site which is pretty impressive.

Anyhoo all help in tracking down this little might is much appreciated. I've been tempted by the Nec 3500, but looking at a benchtest of it, it is rather rough on changing speeds and could cause errors in the burn due to it. Where as the pioneer is a little slower but much smoother. The Asus 16x DL drive has also caught my fancy too


ASUS P5W DH (i975X) - Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.40GHz) Currently 3GHz under water hit 3.3GHz so far - 2x 1GB OCZ PC6400's - 2x Seagate 7200.10 320GB's - Sapphire Radeon x1900xt now water cooled
