    is it safe to assume that they all will eventually? and does anyone have any clue of the likelyhood of getting a non-flashable one?

    im sure they eventually will, but i dont know when, and im not sure, look for one with an older mfg date and you should be good. ask the sales rep to let you see it before you buy it

    there should be a hole in the box somewhere on the back where they scan it, you will see it, just turn the box around

    I can flash all hitachi drives (even the 0079) and samsung drives. Only one I can't flash yet is the BENQ.

    I asked the person who modded mine if he could flash my friend's one, and he said that it doesn't matter what drive it is, he can flash them all at the moment.

    Yeah the BenQ is the only one that can't be flashed right. The new Hitachi can be.

    I keep seeing people's gamer profile pics in their sigs, how are they getting that image? Is it by ways of a TV card, digital camera.....?

    yeah, every store offers some kind of in-store warranty, if you get the benq drive just take it back and say the dvd drive wouldnt open or something
