CDRLabs.com reports us that Sony has unveiled a new combo drive, the CRX320A. The drive supports up to 52x recording speeds, up to 32x re-writing speeds and up to 16x DVD-ROM read speeds…

Who cares? Why bother making a new CD burner with DVD-ROM only? I’ll never buy another optical drive again without DVD burning ability.

Well for one not everyone needs a DVD recorder and secondly a combo drive is cheaper than a DVD recorder. So for those people who need to save some space in their case (notice the cool rhyme here ;)) and who don’t need DVD burning abilities, a combo drive is a good solution.

Is my math off somewhere. I completely agree with the first reply, no more optical drives for me unless it burns DVD or dual layer DVD.

It’s now at the ponit that DVD Writers (with CD writing as a bonus) are cheaper than any of the Combo units what merely add a 16X DVD player to a CD-RW. Only those that don’t keep up with pricing in the industry would ever consider a combo drive such as this Sony.:o

Wow!!! A CD writer AND a dvd-rom for $ 89.99!! Welcome to the year 2001, Sony! Just wait a few months when you can find these turkeys on Ebay for $ 29.99 how lame!:+
