I just checked Ebuyer for an OEM version of Nero 8, to see if you could get it separately at the same time as purchasing your drive, and it only lists Essentials: click here. That suggests that there might not be an OEM version of the Suite available yet.

Nero OEM or Essentials is probably one & the same thing, with the 'Essentials - OEM' version being available to the UK.

From the Nero website click here:

"What does OEM or Essentials version mean?

OEM represents "Original Equipment Manufacturer". These versions are normally sold to customers with bundled hardware like recorders or pc systems. The sale of these versions without the hardware (recorders, pc systems etc.) is allowed in Germany, Austria, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and China. It is not allowed to sell these versions without the related hardware in all other countries. Nero 7 and Nero 8 Essentials are OEM versions whith limited functionality. Customers who have purchased an OEM or Essentials version can buy additional plug-ins or upgrade to the full version of Nero 8.

What is the difference between Nero Ultra Edition, Nero Premium and Nero Essentials/Nero OEM?

....Nero Essentials/OEM are versions of Nero that do not contain all the features of the retail version.
Please note that the recorder manufacturers, who bundle their hardware with Nero software, decide which features will be implemented in the Nero Essentials/OEM version so Essentials or OEM versions do not have the full functionality of a full version."

I think you can scratch the "yet" from the end of my reply, then. It looks like you won't get the full-fat version without stumping up the full-fat price. Not worth it, in my opinion, when the OEM spec is so cheap.
