How are these drives?

I am thinking of upgrading my old cdrom and burner, what do you all think of this for a dvd rom… Toshiba SD-M1612, and this for a burner…Lite On 48x12x48 model LTR-48125W. Will those combos burn anything, or is there something better I should get?
Also I noticed that some of the Lite On’s have an S instead of a W in the model number, what’s the difference?

A Toshiba SD-M1612 is great (second to none :)) for everything excepr ripping DVDs :frowning: cant tell you much about the CD-RWs though.

The writer you’re considering is also a great writer. For differences between s and w models, do a search of the Lite-on forum.
