Hey peeps, just read this over at PCWorld.com. It was written by a chick, so I wouldn't put too much stock in it :D :rotfl: JK

If ya notice, the Plextor isn't in the top 5 ;)

The Yamaha Lightspeed is the one I want, but it's too expensive right now, I'll wait til it drops, but damn, that sucka has an 8 Meg buffer :eek:

If I were to get a new one..
I'd go with the TDK b/c of the price..

but looking at the times are not that impressive..

My 8x X 4x X 32x HP CD-Writer takes a WHOLE 10 mins for a CD..
which is a little more than 2x the speed of the TDK
with 4 mins..

hmm
8x4 = 24
10/4= 2.5
2.5x8= 20

The 8X's were Plextor's. Not sure about the 24X, but TDK used (I think) the sanyo drive for the 16X's and the 12X's.


Hell_Yes alerted us a while back that Cost Co had them for $129 dollars. I've seen them as low as $139 from various online vendors.

I just bought the 16x version from BestBuy.com for $79 after rebate.

The CostCo here, hasn't stocked the 24X version as of yet. I'll be a 2 burner man when they do.
