I’ve settled on these two 40x burners, but they are so close to being perfect I can’t decide. The new Lite-On firmware may push it over the edge in favor of the Lite-On since it can read protected audio discs now, and it supports Mt. Rainer, but the ASUS is the better reader.
So question-- Is the ASUS just a faster reader, or does it actually read more discs than the Lite-On?
I will want a single drive for reading, writing, playing music, extracting perfect audio and everything.
Which is the better drive? (Please, no opinions on the 48x speed ones. I’ve narrowed it to these two.) Does one burn audio discs better than the other as well?
