atapi crap

I think that your comment is very useless and stupid. Most drives today are ATAPI and they are sufficient to 99% of the users, and you know it.

As SCSI, it would coast twice as much and would thus be even better a status symbol. :B If you are out of IDE ports, there are IDE controller cards…

I wanna see some serial ATA CD/DVD burners! Then I will be impressed… Yes I know the format is for hard drives only, but think of the speed with CD/DVD drives! Incredible… Say so long to SCSI…

SCSI is still faster as SATA (actually more as twice as fast) and optical SCSI is even more faster as SATA SATA becomes i bit interesting when SATAII is released. but for know im still going for SCSI so i hope that plextor will release a good SCSI writer someday.

Plextor already has a SCSI CD-RW drive, it’s a little slower then this one, but performs well. CD Freaks Review

@Mailstrom: Did you ever think about something simple as transfer ratesols? 52x cd-r is about 9 MB/s. It doesn’t matter the slightest little bit whether your interface does 150, 160, 300, 600 or 1000000 MByte/s

Mostly hype, and very little hard data to back it up. Not what I would call an “objective” review at all. No side-by side comparisons, what gives?

That’s why is a preview and not a review. HWZ has an engineering sample and that will, of course, not be the same as the retail version.
