    Well I ordered this for my new computer. You can find them for a pretty good price. I got mine for only $59 including shipping. It comes with Nero but it can only use this particular burner. Very nice, runs fast, looks pretty good.

    Highly recommended for a CD-Writer :thumb:

    Lite-On drives are awesome. They perform on par, if not better than the competition and are significantly cheaper. I recommend them too.

    Ya Lite-on I have read some great reviews on them. They are actually almost plextor equivelents for a much cheaper price.

    I've got the 32x model goin' atm and that can burn a backup game CD in around 2.5-3 mins (Nero Disk Copy), on the fly straight from the LiteOn DVD (PS1 disks, and other protected formats, inside 5mins using CloneCD). :thumb:

    Can't wait to try my 48x one though in my new setup. :D

    I got myself a new TDK Cyclone 48x24x48 for just about $65. Is that a good buy or what. BTW, some IOMEGA's CDRW are made by Lite-On and some by Plextor. You have to pay little bit more for Plextor though.

    If you have the Cyclone branded one, then you have the European model. The same drives are called veloCD in the States. I couldn't say why, though. I do agree, however, that it is a good drive and the price is right. Mine ended up being US$79, but that was when they first hit the streets. It screams, though. :D

    I have the Lite-On 40X12X48 and I have burned over 100 cd's with no coasters made. I even can burn at 40x on 32x rated CD-R's. This drive is just plain fast and very reliable.
