Yamaha never released a 48x CD-RW-drive

a far superior drive to the MSI. i would choose the Yamaha over the MSI without a doubt.
unless you really need the SATA, i would stay with the Yamaha. like the Wizard said, the difference in time to burn a full CD between 44x and 52x is negligible.

i guess the Yamaha was good in it's day (i guess that's what i had in mind when i wrote that - what i remember about the drive from back then), but now without firmware support it's too outdated. ahsame.

Ian wrote:If you can, I'd wait. Faster LightScribe drives are right around the corner. I haven't heard what BenQ is doing yet, but both Lite-On and LG are going to release new drives soon. HP's next drive, the dvd740, is based on the LG 4166.
