That TDK USB drive is a very nice looking external - probably the sweetest looking I have seen. Unfortunately it is still pretty expensive even with the hot deal :(

That TDK USB2.0 drive doesn't look like its based on a Lite-On Design with the 2 LED's in the middle.

No it looks like an ASUS. The stand gives it away.

Too bad. I assume, if it is an ASUS, that is based on the CRW-4816A, which didn't do very well in terms of writing quality in your tests:

Ian's review wrote:Not everything was perfect. Even with the new firmware, the CRW-4816A's writing quality was not very good. Most of the CD's I burned had a lot of C1 errors. Some of these discs could not even be read back by the drive!

Do you know if they ever came out with yet another firmware upgrade that actually improved matters?

Still, it does look nice. :-? The blue TDK tray never appealed to me much before, but the black case really sets it off nicely.

Klipsch ProMedia 4.1 Specs

This Klipsch ProMedia speaker system is one of the best audio systems around for computer users. Klipsch is a very respected speaker company and produce many top of the line speaker systems for home audio systems as well as computer systems. I have personally heard these speakers and I would say their performance and sound is similar if not better than the Logitech Z-560's that I currently own. $149.99 and free shipping on this speaker system is an incredible deal. Free shipping is a really nice bonus since the box for this nice speaker set can weigh more than 40 lbs.
