My Aopen 48x12x50 drive was very good. I would compare it with the Lite-On 48125W (48x12x48)

I've acquired one 52x24x52x(Buslink-Aopen) less than 2 months ago, for a low price(US$19.99 after rebate)...
The drive performs fast DAE(8x/9x, using EAC in secure mode); but some little faults, make me feel unconfortable with it:
1.The drive generates too much vibration and noise.(reading/ripping audio)
(at first, I had a impression of a defective unit and exchanged it , but the second one had identical behaviour).
2.It doesnt allow me burning at 4x(audio).
Because of this, I still prefer use my other CDRW trusted drives: an old, but very reliable, LG 12/8/32 and second Buslink 52x24x52x (a rebagged Lite-On 522446s).
My Aopen-Buslink uses firmware 1.05, but since many people reported problems flashing it, I dont wanna take the risk.
(firmware 1.06 and later provides 4x burning and the feature for slowing down to 40x).

Thanks for the link, fil! Actually, I ordered mine about two weeks ago from BestBuy (52327S and cd label kit for $10 after MIR), but if I hadn't, I'd definitely be taking advantage of the Circuit City deal. :D I'm still waiting for my drive to arrive (shipped out today) because the burner was on backorder for a couple of weeks after I ordered it. :(
