Sunday I was gonna buy a Lite-On 48x12x48 CDRW drive, but now the lite-on’s can’t copy the new securom and Lite-on are releasing a new 52x CDwriter very soon.
I’ve been in this situation before, Twice in fact. I bought 2 CDwriters that were good at the time, but several weeks afterwards, new copy protections were released which made them expensive paperweights.
Now that current hardware can’t copy the new securom, and lite-on (which are probably still the best) are releasing a new cd-writer very soon, should I wait until the new Securom protection is broken, and Lite-On release their new 52x Drive, or should I buy the 48x Lite-On accepting the conditions that I can only backup programs which have been released before now and that it is already an expensive paperweight?

I want everything out in the open, for debate.
