#1

ASUS CRW-5224A/ASUS CRW-5232AS vs. LITE-ON 52246s/LITE-ON 5232

Im influenced to get the Lite-on 52246 because of this thread here
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?threadid=69968

But im just confirming if its good, thanks?

It is good, but the Liteon 52327S(52x R, 32x RW and 52x READ) has increased rewriting speed.

So what ? Where’s the media then ? But most importantly, how reliable is 32x rewriting ?

  1. Why are you looking at the Asus now?

From what I understand, the Asus is a better reader whilst the Liteon is a better writer. Writing is more important IMHO as it relates to longevity of burnt discs (and you can easily buy a cheap Liteon 166 for a good reader).

  1. How do they compare to the LiteOn SOHC-5232K?

Bottom line

ASUS will kill safedisc2 every time, liteon most of the time (no guarantee)
liteon 52x will kill most audio
ASUS cannot install a twinpeak backup (neither can Plex or Toshi)
liteon are not 100% reliable subs readers (ASUS are)
Plex for superb audio, Yammy too.
Nothing else matters :wink:

I’m very happy with both my LiteONs. Can’t find any faults with them.

The Asus spec is v.good - but can you get a black bezeled version anywhere!!
