Yes that's quite misleading (not that anybody will notice any difference between 52x and 54x...).
This drives confuses me. At first, I didn't expect Plextor to release any read-only drive once again. Then they come with a cheap and fast CDROM drive..... as it gets harder and harder to buy CDROM drives (because everybody wants a DVD drive and CDROMs are produced less) they come with a CDROM.
I don't know if it can be as good as the 40x CDROM was/is. I own 2 of those drives, and mine should be replaced pretty soon as they've had their best time.
If one of those new drives can give performance equal or better than the 40x CDROM I'd be very interested. Especially when it's a SCSI drive they will offer, because I'm running out of IDE connectors and I prefer SCSI anyway..
