Samsung 24x

is this a good drive to get
i’m looking for a 24x or higher

depends on what you plan to do with it.

burn Audio CDs and Data CDs

i dont need SD2

do you know of any reviews besides the pcworld one?

Take a look at the Yammy 24x review at…awesome DAE.

Samsung make all the low end Ricoh drives too. Fit & Finish is great.

The Lite-On LTD-163 DVD-ROM is also one of the greatest rippers (DA & VCD) around at the moment as is the Taiwan AOpen CD-ROM 48x

The 24X samsung is not that bad… has a nice review of it. The front look rather special.

the average DAE speed of by current burner is 31x
i just need the samsung to burn
