    Cheap CD Rw

    I have finally given up on my HP 7200i coaster maker and decided to invest in a new CR RW.

    I don't need great speed - I only have a K6 2 550 - and am looking at spending not that much.

    Ebuyer have artecs for £22 and BTC's , LiteOns and LG's starting about ten more.

    Anyone have any opinions they'd like to share...

    Thanks as ever

    Darren

    AOpen, Asus, LG, LITE-ON, TDK...


    Questionable quality with Artec.

    Ahh...yes, the 7200i. One burner I will never ever miss.

    So far I like my TDK VeloCD 48x24x48 burner. The price was right at about $79 after rebates six months ago.

    there was at my local store a cdrw for $20. (after rebates of course). Cendyne i think was the manufacturer. At this price, would it be acceptable to pass up on a little quality for $?

    Correct me someone if i'm wrong but I think the Cendyne drives are based (or rebadged) on Lite-On drives.

    is Cendyne drives based on Lite-On? Does this mean they are acceptable quality? The sale is now over at the store but they are having another sale and i told my boss i'd go out and get her a burner sometime this week.

    <edit>

    nevermind, i guess this is why everyone always says there is a search button for the forum for a reason
