Thumbs up i just bought the Lite On 48x24x48 CDRW

whohoo! man I was looking for a new burner and CD ROM since mine was acting funny and my old burner was only 8X

I did some searching last week then seen the link posted on the main page and the reviews made me a buyer. thx for that info.

From the review on the main page it looks great. I did some more searching and found good remarks about Lite on so for the price it looks like it's a winner. :P

Edit: Just seen it listed in my PC World issue (November) top 10 CD-RW's #7

I just picked on up myself. Newegg is having a sale on this drive. It's sale price is $57. If you want one, you might want to grab it. These babies might go fast.

Lite-On makes a heck of a drive. It can do everything the lauded Plextor can do and then some for about half the price. I just got the 48x12x48 (48126S) to go with my Plextor 24/10/40A and Pioneer DVD-ROM. It's a great combo.

I also just got a 48x Lite-On from newegg after my 24x Plextor died. It's a great cd-burner, hands down. Quiet, fast, and very cheap.
