First I got a Cendyne/Verbatem/LiteOn 32x at office max for what will be $40 after rebates. Then yesterday I got a Digital Research/BenQ, formerally ACER, 40x drive for $20!!! At first I was dissappointed in the BenQ but after getting 40x cd's (free after rebates) I'm very happy. Yes it burns at 40x. I've had a couple of older Acer cd-r's that are still working so I'm happy with the name..
