Which CDRW is good?

I want to buy a 40X or 48X rewriter. I am now looking for Asus and Liteon. Which one is good in terms of copying ability, stability, compatibility and durability?

Thank you

  6. Yup, get a Lite-On, definitely.

  7. Yep. 48x24x48x Liteon here. It rocks.
    Cheap. Fast. Quiet. Reliable. Burns Copy Protected games (for backups!). Burns fast on slow rated media.

    What more could i want?

  9. Lite On 48x burner is pretty great from what i hear.. what makes it an even better deal besides it's very nice PRice Tag... is that you can upgrade the firmware to make it a 52X drive which is nice

  13. Here is a very informative site on CDRWs:
    http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/

    I have a LITEON 48X24X48 and one of the major features that it can do is full CAV writing (Constant Angular Velocity) the Asus 52X24X52 has this feature too. Don't get a drive that only does CLV writing (Constant Linear Velocity) such as the Asus 40X12X48.
