Upgrading the Liteon 24102B

I’m thinking about upgrading my 24x liteon burner that has worked for years to something faster. Is 52X that much faster or should I keep burning until this drive bites the dust? Is lite on still the brand to buy for making 1:1 backups of cds? What drive would you get/or wait for?

Thanks

if your scans are starting to show a decrease in quality then yeah but otherwise id stick with what youve got
