View Full Version : CDRW replacement

15-07-2003, 10:01 PM
I was going to order a new CDRW but was informed of a shortage of the one I wanted but was offered a different one at a similar price.
The one I was going to get was Asustek rw5224a 52x24x52.
The one I was offered for immediate delivery was CyQ,ve cq5252pro.
I thought I would look up the tech. details and decide, but all I decided was that I did'nt know or understand the tech details of cdrw's.
Any help appreciated

It's not a brand I would choose though to be honest I've never tried one.
Stick with something a little more mainstream such as LG, Samsung, Aopen, Liteon or Sony. I've also installed a lot of BTC burners and not had one problem with them yet. All mainstream burners seem to be around the same ballpark price give or take 20 bucks either way so there is no need to get desperate and take whats offered.
for price comparisons.
by the way cheapest quoted price on pricespy for the CyQ is $82
the Asus $95

Asus is one of the better drives you can buy... I have bought 3 for myself, and they're going great... and it is a better brand than the one on offer to you.
