I got some questions and a story to tell you all.
I bought an LG-8525B CD-RW drive at Bestbuy about two 2 weeks ago in Canada, I notice that the reading on rewritable CDs was terrible and that it would make a very loud vibration some times (not high speed reading or writing) but not all the time,that worries me as that could be a problem, so I exchanged it for another same model, now the new one doesn't make the loud vibration sound at all (which tells me that the first one had a problem for sure) instead it makes some clicking sound some times and some times it makes a very lound clicking sound, I tried to simulate the exactly task but can't get it to do that every time only about 20% of the time so this worries me also. so I went to tried to exchange it again, this time they didn't have it in stock they told me to go to another store which had 18 left, when I got there the computer deptment manager told me that they didn't have any, this makes me unhappy but mistakes do happen, anyways another employee over heard the situation and suggest the TDK 52x24x52, he said that TDK makes good drives and the Dept Manager agreed, I told them that TDK don't make their own drives, Dept Manager said "Yes they do", I told them no they just put their name tag on it, so this hot shot "computer dept manager" again said TDK makes their own drive he's sure of that, I told them that I do know about this kind of stuff and that they don't make their own drive, now he looks at me like I'm as stupid as he is, then I asked him if I can have a look in side the box and he saids to me "No... not unless you plan to buy it, and especially because you are SO CONVINCE that they don't make their own drives"
, I just ignore what he said and went to get my money back.
Ian and others can you guy please confirm to me (hopefully this dumb ass Bestbuy Dept Manage will read this thread) that TDK do not make their own drive instead it's a Lite-On rebadge?
Now that I don't a burner anymore do you guys think I should get the Lite On 52327S for $38can? this would be my first Liteon, or should I get another LG? and why. thanks all for reading and answearing.
