Sony 215A1

I was just given a brand new Sony 48-24-48x recorder, and I have the option to trade it in for a Plextor or an Asus. Should I keep it?

Also, I am unable to find data about it: is it a rebadged/re-engineered Lite-On? Does it support Mt. Rainier?

Any advice/link would be appreciated.

Info on the drive here

I'd go for the Plex or the Asus though

I would suggest to wait for a CDFreaks review on the drive, but i guess you're in a hurry

no real hurry, I am just surprised that the drive is already on the market without so much as a review in the scoop sites. The Sony link is next to worthless: they have no drivers and won't even say anything about Mt.Rainier

and while there is still nothing on the 'Net, a friend just bought an ASUS 52-24-52 this morning, for €145 (VAT included). He will test it tonight.

The sony CDX 2xx are Lite-ons

you can upgrade the firmware using a lite-on firmware or down the appropriate firmware from my site below.

Yep i guess we do (i have never bought one though ) And it is sometimes more expensive than a plextor

Sorry but we have to keep things in English here .. you can always PM me or e-mail me in any language you wish

Heh thankz man.I'll try upgrading the firmware to see if i there's any difference.I only hope not to burn my cd instead of the cd-rs cause i'm not very familiar with flashing and all that stuff.
Let's see...

Hemispasm i wouldn't buy it myself but they gave it to me for free.
It was a real deal

Hehehe, interesting remarks, fellow Greeks! As a matter of fact the Sony was a birthday present. The understanding that I have with my friends is that they buy me gifts from "Plaisio" and I go trade them in and buy whatever I need instead. From the info I have gathered, I'll go trade the Sony for the new Asus 52x tomorrow, god willin' and the creek don't rise ...
