ASUS seems to be the Best, but which of it 40x, 48x or 52x differences ???

searching for a game-protection-killer ???

are there differences between these writers …
or is it only mount-rainer???

the 40 speed and the 52 speed models are both good writers.
from what i heard some people say that the 40 speed drive extraction is a bit smoother.
if possible stay away from the 48 speed model. it suffering from severe writing quality issues and its very media picky.

i think that the 52 speed model is the best choise to go for.
kills the two most used data protections thats out now (SD and Securom)
and the 52 speed is supported by asus.
it seems that asus brings new firmwares only for the 48 and the 52 speed models. never spotted an <40 speed model update on the asus site.

the main difference between the 48 and the 52 speed are:

  • writing speed (duh)
  • 52 speed drive writing quality is much better
  • 52 speed drive is less media picky

so chose between an 40X or 52X
(i’ll go for 52X :wink: )

ok than …

but both writers 40x and 52x are able to produce working backups of sd2 or securom new vol.2 protected games ???

so it`s only the way of speed they seem to be different …

as long as the 40x is able to copy securom new … i am going to get one …

what`s about Gothic 2… a german production …

PROBLEM:

securom check: while installation and while gaming ???

did you get to know something about this ??
