Now I’ve stayed out of the CD Freak business for quite some time so I’m a bit confused. I kind of fell in love with the Optiarc 7240S, it’s inexpensive and seems to burn with great quality… but it is only sold as an internal device.
Since I cannot use internal burners, I have thought of putting it in an enclosure.
- USB 3.0 is not supported in my laptop, and burning at more than 18x via USB 2.0 is close to impossible. It seems I need one of those expensive eSATA enclosures to enjoy the 24x speeds…?
- Are these compatible with eSATA ExpressCards (for example JMicron)?
- And what about the strange “weak power supply” issue? It seems a lot of external enclosures come with underdimensioned power supplies, but where can I obtain better replacements?
Now if anybody has some personal experience to talk about, it would be great
