I’m looking at possibly picking up a Lite-on 52x24x52 in external USB/Firewire case for $117 on eBay. Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=27177&item=3403552649&rd=1 Any performance problems with using in external enclosure? This is mostly for high-quality audio burning.
Also found the 48x Plextor for $65 after rebate (http://www.compuplus.com/insidepage.php3?refer=pricegrabber.com&id=728) and was thinking of putting one of those into ext. enclosure. But I imagine I know which one this forum will recommend.
Any advice welcome.
