Correct me if I'm wrong here, but is it true that Liteon make the fastest CD-RW on the market today, being their 52x24x52x CDRW burner.
Now Plextor and TDK brag on, on how good their burners are, I'm sure they are and dont get me wrong here. But I've found TDK and Plextor to be far over priced, plus isnt TDK made by Liteon or from the same factory in China, and I do know as a fact the TDK's are made in China. Not sure about the Plextors though. But it seems to me that TDK have the cheek to produce CDRW's at same costs as Liteon, slower speed, but yet having the price to be yanked up, so the CEO's etc etc can have a nice big lump sum $$$$$$$ in their pockets by the end of the year. Plus it would not surpries me if Plextor are now using the same technology as Liteon, i.e like parts, laser, mechanisms etc etc, but once again a yanked up price.
In Australia a TDK burner will cost you back close to $AU 400, and plextor perhaps slightly more. I can go out and get the fastest Liteon for AU$150 and yet again be up front and save $$$$$.
Do you think it's about time these expensive merchants try and lower their prices on their goods and learn to compete with company's like Liteon, BenQ etc etc.
Also finally if TDK and Plextor rave on how good they are and their overpriced CDRW's then shouldn't they be making the fastest CDRW's in the world, with all the $$$$$$$ being injected into their company I would expect so.
