allright - cool, how do you like the drive so far & didya lay your hands on some of that new 32x rewritable media yet !??
I really like the 52327S; it's writing quality has been quite good with just about every kind of disc that I've tried. Today, I burned a Fuji (TY) 48x disc at 52x (full 80 mins of data), and I got these results when I scanned it at 52x on the 52327S:
C1: 6 Max, 920 Total, 0.191 Average.
The only thing about it that I don't like is that old CMC media (Imation 16x, Imation 32x, Philips 40x) is limited to 24x, and some newer CMC media (Spin-X 40x, Philips 48x, some Imation 48x) is limited to 40x. Interestingly, some Imation 48x media works at 52x.
I wish I had some 32x CD-RW media... The fastest CD-RW I have is 24x, and I only have one of those (the one that came with the 52327S).
