WTF! Why can't they just stick to optical drives? Ian, please never do this to CDRLabs! [-o<

They should perfect reviewing optical drives before moving elsewhere! :lol: Thier PX-712A review was pretty good, but all thier reviews prior to that sucked.

Yeah, but note that *prior* word there... the reviews afterwards have been much better!

I have no problem with CDRinfo.com reviewing stuff other then optical drives, but I really hope they keep their focus on the burners and not spend too much time on other hardware.

From what I've heard, they're expanding to include other hardware. I think they want to be like Anandtech, etc. Whatever floats their boat I suppose. I'm still waiting for a name change. Is greekgeeks.com taken?

I have to admit that its nice to take a break from optical storage every once and a while. But don't worry, we're not about to do the same with CDRLabs.

Thread Revive! Anyway, I thought I should mention that you DID review a nForce2 motherboard a little while ago ;) I like hardware reviews, you should through in a few once and awhile to mix things up a bit.
