Does anyone have any experience or recommendations with respect to this drive?
Thinking of getting one for my second system, for basic tasks like saving files and downloads, backing up, etc.

Hello!

It´s a Liteon 52327s-OEM. I had bad experiences with Liteon, I prefer the LG GCE 8525, fast and good

no disrespect for scour, but an overwhelming majority of the regular members here would recommnd Lite-On (and thus the Sony). great CDRW drives.

Never had a 52x-writer that´s real quiet; but the noise is ok for the speed :)

LG drives are a lot more quiet than Liteon drives.

anyway, the CRX230ED is the newer 5238S, not 52327S
