sorry gonna return this cd burner without burning even 1 cd

i don't want my plextor premium to catch me cheating on it

im surprised i wasn't yelled at for buying it, watch my plextor premium reads this and will only burn at 32x for the next 2 nights, just cause its mad at me

Well, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place, and yes I own a Premium. If I already had it, the least I would do is try it out and see how it works. Doubght it's as good as the Plex though.
