same drive A04 is retail, 104 is oem.

Retail gets you cables, software, blank discs etc. 104 is bare drive only, hence big price difference.

According to pioneer, A04 is the boxed retail package and the 104 is the OEM version.. I phoned the tech people there and they said they is no different other than the above.. They also supply sony with a OEM drive which maybe slightly modified.. They is a firmware 1.30 but this is for the sony models.. Not to be used with the 104/A04
