To kick off the week, CDRLabs has taken a look at the world's first Serial ATA combo drive, the MSI XA52P. Featuring some of the fastest speeds currently available, the XA52P reads and writes CD's at 52x, rewrites at 24x and reads DVD's at 16x. Of course, MSI hasn't stopped there. Their new combo drive also includes features like SuperLink buffer underrun protection and support for SoftBurn, ABS and Active Panel technologies.
In this review we take a look at some of the features found on the XA52P and then put it up against some of the combo drives from the competition. Is support for Serial ATA enough to put MSI's new drive on top? You'll have to read the review to find out.
