Litey 52x in external case?




I’m looking at possibly picking up a Lite-on 52x24x52 in external USB/Firewire case for $117 on eBay. Link: 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 ( 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.


The eBay enclosure looks like ME-320U2F of Welland (, also available at NewEgg

I have been using ME-320F (FireWire) with Lite-On LTR48125W for almost nine months on my notebooks (98SE and XP) without any problem.:bigsmile:
