Some years before,when CD-RW's were not so common,there were two types of drives.CD-R drives and CD-RW drives,writing to CD-R's only and the other writing to CD-R/RW respectively.

not quite accurate.
i don't think there was ever a drive that burned CDRW but not CDR!

at first there were CD-R drives that burned (only) CD-R media.
then there were CD-R/W drives that burned both CD-R and CD-RW media.

liteon gets my vote for best bang for buck. You can buy 3 of the 52327S for one plextor premium and the differences are very negligible.Read the respective reviews of both drives are see which one is better for you in your partitcular situatuion.

Hmm, remind me not to go to wherever you went for math class!

LTR-52327S OEM $31

Plextor Premium OEM $81

81/31=2.61

and considering you can't buy 6/10ths of a drive, you can only get 2. Both products cost $5 to ship so I am leaving that out for the sake of actual product price comparison.

Watch Best Buy and Circuit City. They occasionally throw the LTR-52327S retail on sale for $19.99 after MIR. I bought three during three different promotions and my brother purchased two.
