The new Lite On 52x24x52 for only $69 and after rebates $49. Today I bought a new cd-writer for a friend who was interested in a cd writer only to backup data. I went to COMPUSA (Arlington, VA) and bought a BUSLINK Cd writer 52x24x52 (the cheapest driver in store) and went to his home to install it. When I discovered that the drive is a Lite On drive. I went back to the store and bought another one fr myself now.
The CD writer is Lite ON LTR 52246S (52x24x52).
The rebate is only available until the 7 of December.
