According to cnn/idg :

The Sony CRX1611/82U ranks as an adequate overall performer–in spite of its sluggish times installing Microsoft Office and writing CD-R to an image. As a bonus, it includes back-up software, making it a good choice for data backup tasks.

According to a google cache’d Pc world :

According to CloneCd :

CR-X1611E

Some Lite-On’s are better , but it’s your choice.
