I can't believe they still have a 10X for sale!!

I also think it is funny that they have the CenDyne 32X - 48X models all for the same price, even though your link doesn't show the 40X as being on sale (I think I read somewhere that it is).
Let me see, I can choose a 32X or a 48X CenDyne for $29.99
Why on earth would anyone pick the 32X... :)

Well, my only guess for picking a 32X CenDyne over a 48X is that the drive inside would be better. For example, CenDyne doesn't only use Lite-On drives for 48X. Maybe you'll get a BenQ or Aopen. I have no idea what they use for 32X, but they may have only packaged 32X Lite-Ons. In that case, I may opt for the 32X if it's more likely that I would get a Lite-On. All the more reason to go for the sure thing if I order online, where I can't see the product code/serial number on the box.

Another reason to buy a slower drive is that it might not require as much PC horsepower. Just a guess . . .

Actually, CenDyne sold the OEM version of the AOpen CRW3248 in their 32x boxes (model number on box is "32X12X48X CD-RW") along with the Lite-On drives. I actually got the AOpen version, but I ended up RMAing the drive, and I requested the Lite-On as a replacement. They did send me the Lite-On drive as a replacement.

If I were to get one of these, I would definitely want to buy locally so I could check the model number.

I thought about that after posting.
The thing is, unless I am mistaken, that BOTH the 32X and 48X are manufactured by several manufacturers (e.g. LiteOn, AOpen, Ricoh etc).
