    im quite happy with my 40/12/48 liteon cdrw, its fast and has the underbuff protection, theres now a 48/12/48 liteon, but its stupid, theres no disks out yet that support 48x (yet)

    theres also the aopen cdrw 40/12/48, £10 more, but i would personally go for the liteon,

    Plextor have updated the 40s to a 40max, about £65 from Aria. I've had the Artec 16x DVD (IDE) recommended to me for all round readability of discs.

    LiteOn DVD-ROM
    Very fast and you can grab it for as little as £29.99 if you shop around.

    Right now I got the Liteon 48x12x48 as me burner and a Kenwood 75x cd-r IT'S FOOKING FAST! but the cds get somewhat warm but it's great


    i would recommend a 16x pioneer dvd-r drive cause they can match the speed of the burner

    You obviously come from the old school of SCSI which blows EIDE away. I'm still trying to get used to my Mitsumi EIDE (see my fastest CDR thread) because EIDE is crap.

    Anyway, you'll be pleased to know that Yamaha have released a 44x SCSI burner. Its EIDE with a SCSI adapter !!!
