Looking to change my Plextor 24x writer. Have been very interested in this ASUS 52x model, would it be the one to go for?
- seems to be THE drive to copy everything
- concern 1: noise? how loud is it compared to say the Plextor 48x?
- concern 2: support? noticed that although asus have updated the firmware, they haven’t listed what has been done. Also owning an asus graphics card I know that they can’t be bothered to update their own customised drivers EVER… unless they release a new product model (thus, must use Nvidia drivers which aren’t ‘quite’ as good). What’s their record on this for writers?
Was going to purchase the Plextor 48x since got good reviews and I’ve liked my Plextor 24x. But hardware wise the reviews of the Asus ‘seem’ better? Only concern with the Plextor is copying ability.
The continuous updates of CloneCD, Blindwrite and Alcohol have just now confused me - does the hardware STILL matter, or do these programmes now overcome this?
