The new name for Acer is Benq.

Also, I think thier drives suck, I had an old Acer 1640A 16x40 DVD-ROM drive, and it was good, until about 2 years into use when I needed to use the emergency eject and my drive has been screwed up ever since then. Of course, I replaced the drive shortly after that problem.

P.S. Congrats on your first post, will you be posting often, or will you quit after you get an anwser for this question?

I would recomend a Lite-On. They are 100 times better and not that much more expensive, if more expensive at all.

OK, I just saw the other thread saying you don't want a Lite-On. Then I would recomend the Plextor Premium that you mentioned in the other thread.

I am using one of the newer benq drives the 4824p and it is not that bad of a drive. In the time that I have used it the drive has not produced a single coster on me. this dosn't mean thougt that the 5224p is as good as the 4824p.
