Or, is this the Lite-On Reputation that says to expect improved RW Quality?
It doesn't take an engineer to understand that in order to RW at 32x, it has to have improved laser calibration and control. RW is the most difficult and demanding task that a drive does. This improved quality may or may not carry over to CDR's at high speeds, we'll have to wait and see. Very soon I'll be posting some tests that will confirm, or not, my opinion. If the chipset improvements are 1/2 as good as the 6 series improvements over the 5, it'll certainly be worth the whopping price of $43.
