I see that not only does Lite-On have a 24X out, but also Sanyo and TDK. The TDK is the most expensive, but still way cheaper than the Plextor. Has anyone heard/read anything good/bad about these 3 economy brands? I can’t find a thing. There is a good discussion on the Lite-On vs the Plextor going on in the Dutch forum, but I can’t read Dutch.
