I know this thread has been dormant for a week or so, but I hope you won't mind me resurrecting it.

rdgrimes, since you posted this you've gone on to do some very extensive tests on the 52327S yourself. Do you still feel the same? How does talk of the 52326
S effect your preference?
I'm totally clueless about C1 & C2 errors. Higher numbers are bad, right?
(How high is bad enough to worry about?) What I really want to know is... are these errors something that firmware can & will correct?
I am on the verge of buying a DVD-ROM drive and a CD-RW drive. I've decided on the LiteOn LTD-166S DVD drive, but I'm undecided about the CD burner - it'll be the 52327S, the 52246S or the ASUS CRW-5224A.
If you were me, what would *you* choose, and why? Please help me decide.
(Incidentally, how come ASUS doesn't rate a mention in this debate? I see a lot of LiteOn vs ASUS debate, and LiteOn vs Plextor debate.)
I hope you'll take the time to help this desperate newbie!
Thanks, in advance.
