Burn baby burn!

Lite-On 52x32x52 (LTR-52327S)

Postby aviationwiz on Mon Mar 03, 2003 5:14 pm

All it says on thier site is:

LTR - 52327S
COMING SOON !!



So I guess we are going to see a Litey 52x32x52. That's cool. 32x Rewritable is awesome (if anyone ever used rewritable cds.)

Darn, I was hoping that they'd introduce a LTR-52326S :cry: I guess they still could...

I hope they don't stick with CAV rewriting, otherwise even at 32x it won't be appreciably faster than the 24x P-CAV rewriters like Yamaha's F1.

Best Buy carries the 24x Memorex in a bright pink box...

But it's made by the same people who make the 12x & 4x cd-rw's. Infodisc.

Seconded. Avoid the Memorex CD-RW discs unless you want to throw away your money:

Hmm... I guess even Fry's sometimes misses the mark. You can buy the discs for $2 less directly from Yamaha online, with free ground shipping to boot:

Hey guys

Does the "7" at the end of the model # (52327s) mean it is built on another series chipset (like Mediatek 7 instead of 6 like the current 52x24's are) ? If so, does this mean that we won't be able to just overclock our current 52X24X52 lite-ons to the new 52327s?

What do you guys think?

Yes, I think you are correct that we will not be able to flash the "6" series to "7" series.

That's what I thought.

Any more opinions want to weigh in? Is this indeed going to be a Mediatek series 7 chipset?

If so, I think we may finally see P-CAV writing speeds at least in 24x RW mode. It would probably only get better with a new firmware rev.

I think this needs to be added to the FAQ section...

The number does not coincide with the MediaTek chipset. It's signifies the generation of drive design. But yeah, Lite-On does usually use a different chipset for each new drive even though the difference could be as small as a new servo controller or something.

do they really suck? i have alot (10) of the 10X CD-Rw discs and i havent had any problems. i use them to make data cds for backup frequently. what was your experience like and which ones do u recommend? Memorex CD-RWs are the only 10x and 24x ones at Best Buy, so i didnt put any thought into it. have u tried the 16-24x ones from Memorex also? i just brought some of those too

Read through all the posts linked from my post, and you will see a lot of people unhappy with Memorex CD-RW discs, and a lot of examples of bad Memorex CD-RW test results. That includes the latest 16x-24x versions.

I have not touched a Memorex CD-RW since I bought a 10 pack of 80 minute 4x discs:
Image

That was the worst of the lot. The other's didn't fare much better. 8 out of 10 died within 2 months. Several were dead right out of the box.

I have read of other's problems with the 10x Memorex CD-RW's. I don't often 'throw good money after bad" so I just avoid Memorx for CD-RW's.

As far as I know, Memorex are the only one's shipping a 24x CD-RW that is 80 minutes long. If they were made by anyone other than InfoDisc (even CMC) I'd try some.

I learned from my mistake (& other's). I just use Verbatim CD-RW's now.
I've never had a bad disc yet (and I own around 30 Verbatim's).

Hope may be on the way. :D At least here in Europe, Verbatim is shipping 80 min. Ultraspeeds. The scan I posted in the Media Compatibility Thread was for a virgin disk though. After several erase/rewrite cycles, they perform essentially the same as the 74 min. disks.
