IDE CD Readers: ASUS or AOPEN

#1

Sorry to bother you guys, but its just a quick question:

I needed a new CD reader (fed up of looooonnng access times) so i went out and bought a nice Sony 40x. Lovely. Quiet, quick, reliable, great. But its not a variable speed reader (or at least NERO says its not) which is bloody useless to me if i want to use it for CDR.

So hence i am now back in the market for a CD reader once more and want to know if anyone recommends or wants to disuade me from buying a certain reader. IDE only. I fancy either:

ASUS 40x
AOPEN 40x
AOPEN 48x

Anyone know anything? Are they relable? Quick? Varibale speed? Do they sound like a Chinook taking off? Any help would be cool.

Cheers guys

Wel… meebee Asus, but i love my Aopen 32x.
Never reading problems and quiet. Don’t know what the aopen 40x or 48x will do, but the 32x runs like a train.
