Yes, I’m sure this has been posted again and again, and here I go again!
I’m building a new PC - the uber system:
Chieftec Matrix case
Enermax 430W Whisper supply
4x Vantec silent fans
P4 3.06 Ghz chip
Asus P4PE board (tom’s hardware board of 2002)
512 Pc 2700 DDR333
GeForce Ti 4600 128 Mb
WD 7200 40Gb, 8 Meg cache
CDRW - HELP!
Ok, so I’ve got the last of the parts coming in from all over (everything by tomorrow!) since I shopped via pricewatch, and the only thing lacking is the burner.
It’s not from lack of trying, but Lite-On 52x burners, or any Lite-On drive for that matter, seem to be rarer than diamonds. I’ve ordered a 52x 5 times now, and every company’s emailed saying they’re out of stock!
So the question is… for the price, is there another drive that even comes close to Lite-On? Hell, I’d get a Plextor, but 130 bucks is just nuts!
The CD Freaks reviews seem to focus on Plextor, Lite-On, and Mitsumi, so I’m inclined to think you guys really like those brands. I’m inclined to not like Mitsumis since mine can’t coy squat.
So let 'er rip. Thanks!
