I’m trying to get good burning rig mostly for high-quality audio. (Burning my own music). done bunch of web research and want Plextor, but also want ability to use with USB and Firewire. Thinking of getting Plextor 48x24x48 and putting in USB/Firewire enclosure.
Found the 48x Plex for $65 after rebate here: http://www.compuplus.com/insidepage.php3?refer=pricegrabber.com&id=728
Just wondering if there is a performance downside to rigging in ext. enclosure like this, as compared to using it as EIDE as it was designed for. Was considering Lite-on 52x on eBay for $117 already in ext enc. See it here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=27177&item=3403552649&rd=1
Thoughts on which is better way to go. Or should I not try to use an internal in external case? thanks
