Samsung 52x cd drive...worth it?

well i am in the market for a new cdrom drive…my Affrey 56x drive is shot due to a cd exploding in the unit last night…

the Affrey 56x cd drive read my SD2.8 backups with ease

just wanted any opinions about the Samsung drive or any others that are a guarnatee to read SD2.8 backups

much obliged!!!
:bow: :bigsmile:

Why don’t you buy a DVD-ROM drive? It also reads CD’s. I would advise you to buy the JLMS (aka LiteOn) XJ-HD166S or the LiteON 52x CD-ROM drive. Samsung drives are not that good.

thaks for the reponse i do own a LTD-163d liteON dvd drive…i just want a variety of drives that would compliment each other…on playing certain bakups…might go with an LG 52x now!!!

If you don’t mind to have a noisy drive, get the Asus 52x CD-ROM drive. If you want a good and cheap drive try to buy the LiteOn 52x drive.
