Hi i Just bought this dvd writer:
PX-716SA
The PX-716SA, Internal Serial ATA (SATA) DL DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW supports 16X DVD+R and 16X DVD-R Writing; 8X DVD+RW and 4X DVD-RW Rewriting; and 16X max DVD-Reading, 6X DVD±R Double Layer. The DVD/CD burner also boasts high-speed 48X CD-R Writing, 24X CD-RW Rewriting, and 48X max CD-Reading.

because the sales guy told me SAT was faster then the IDE drive. Before i open the box i just wantted to check with you guys if this is true or not. it doesn't say anything on their wed site.
Thanks for the help.

The bus bandwidth is but the drive can not max either, so the speed is essentially the same.
It boils down to availablity of ports, if both are free, it doesn't matter.

not really since no drive goes over 100mbs transfer than yes he was lying but sata eliminates crosstalk(when information get's screwed up and delay's your comp)

There is no crosstalk as long as run as a master with no slave.

Am I correct in saying that this is the ONLY SATA DVD burner on the market (only one I could find)? ...and it's grey, yuck. What's the deal with the lack of SATA DVD drives on the market? When are we ever going to be able to build an all-SATA system?
