Hi

Other than the tiny price difference, what actually is the difference between these two please? The SP610 seems to have much slower write speeds, but is slightly more expensive?

Google is not particularly friendly with this...

Thanks for that - I suppose my point is that they are pretty much exactly the same price, so considering the 610 has a lot slower write speed, and has no mounting tray (no biggie, I presume), why would they be the same price? Is there something else "behind the scenes"?
Or is it just a Dragon pricing quirk.

I think they are just moving older stock.

I bought a SP900 at least 18 months ago and I did get a plastic tray (2.5-3.5 converter with it).

The price isn't too bad though.

For comparison... here is a newer drive from PB Tech

or a better one - but more expensive..
