Was over at Office Max yesterday March 26th and they have the Verbatim 52x24x52 drive for $29.99 ($79.99 with $30.00 in store instant rebate and a $20.00 mail in rebate). I do not know if it is a Liteon rebadge, but can only assume it is. Seems like a good deal. Might be time to upgrade my Litey 40x12x48 @ 48x12x48–but then again I never use Mt. Rainier or CDRW and 52x vs. 48x is so damn nominal as not matter.
