I can get this for $69 after $20 Rebate(I know Rebates do not always work out).I use TDK CDrs and never have had a problem with them and I hear TDK make good Burners.Have read good reviews on this drive and yes.....the Blue Tray is cool...will admit.
Am replaceing a Yamaha 16x so 52x will save me alot of time.Hopefully this the last CD Burner I ever Buy.
I also hear that this is really a Lite ON with a TDK faceplate...are Lite Ons as good as People say?
I am mainly going to use this Drive for DATA Storage(MP3s).
I know what alot of people are going to say.Go get a DVD Burner....but right now I do not have the Cash to spend $200 or more on a good name brand DVD Burner and need to Burn some stuff right away.Plus I am waiting for faster Speeds and the technology to get better.
By the way...nice forum...hope to hear from somebody soon.
