    I don't like memorex.

    Also, I don't like drives above 40x anything, those need fan cooling, or something, I'v had CDs explode on me!

    40x cdrw don't need cooling LMAO

    80 bucks is a bit steep though, try pricewatch I am sure they have cheaper ones

    all you care is if it's got burn proof technology or not

    Gold Star CDRW IDE 48x24x48 w/ Software, Drivers & Burn Proof Software - OEM $56

    Haven't seen a 52X CDRW yet 48x is the fastest out now I think and they don't get hot, that I have ever seen

    my PLEXTOR PLEXWRITER 48x24x48 has never got hot, though it burns real fast

    I don't know Iceman, I'm just paranoid, I had a CD blow up on my, actually, in a 52x drive. Then it happened to one of my friends.

    :) Plextors are awsome drives, Plextor and TDK in my opinion, really know what they are doing.

    Is the data buffer important? I noticed TDK and lite on have 2MB and Plex has 4MB. Or just as long as it is buffer under run protected.

    Buffer is no longer a big issue now that we have burn proof drives.

    Still, it's better to buy a drive with a large buffer.

    Yes save your money and buy a Liteon or a tdk, Plex are expensive but way nice, Burn Proof is the key I have burned over 300-400 CD's and not made one coaster yet

    I would get a Liteon, they are good drives and well priced plus they will let you BACKUP your safedisc 2 games. I have the 32x liteon and a couple of my friends have the 40x drives. We are all very happy with them

    OfficeMax has an IO Magic 48x for 19.99 after rebate thru saturday.

    Anyone has any idea who really makes this drive, I figure it's gotta be a rebadge
