That Cendyne drive is a HOT deal! I was in at my local OM and the boxes that they had were LTR-48246S, so it is actually the 48x24x48x drive that should be upgradeable to the 52x speeds sitting in that box! Not a bad deal at all even before the $30 rebate. If I wasn't set so well for burners, I'd be there as soon as the place opened this morning!

Here is a question to BoGMan1a or anybody who might know.

Does it write 24X CDRW out of the box. or I need to update
the firmware from LiteOn (hence may lose the usage of the
OEM version of Nero comes with the drive)?

Thanks,
kawah

If it actually is a LTR-48246S as reported by BoGMan1a, then it should write 24x right out of the box. Moreover, I believe Cendyne is one of the re-badgers that uses the LiteOn product directly, without customizing the firmware in any way. Check out the label of the Cendyne Ligtning IV that Ian reviewed ( http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/index.ph ... e=Features ) :

It is a LiteOn without any pretension of being anything else. This latest Cendyne is probably the same, so that you should be able to update it directly with LiteOn firmware if you so choose, and the bundled OEM version of Nero will not complain.

I have seen 3 different models in the Cendyne boxes at my local OM, the LTR-48125W, the LTR-48246S, and some CW-4208 :evil: or something like that which I believe is that Accesstek/Optorite model. So, if they are not on the shelf like at some OM's then you need to ask them to check the model# for you. Happy Hunting! :D

Yeah, it should tell you the model name on the label on the back of the box. Look for LTR-48246S on it.

Deals at Office Max

Be careful what you buy at Office Max. I purchased some of their cds that had a rebate on them. Super Buy, except months later I still have not received the rebate.
