I picked up that Antec power supply CompUSA had on sale. Let's see if my rebate check shows up now. :roll:

Those Norwood Micro DVD writers they have on sale are BenQ DW1640's.. at least the internals are. It's not a bad deal for $40 out the door.

I noticed that your using a Nforce board, if you get a Maxtor check out the Hardware Forum- http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic. ... 552#155552

I vote for the DW1655 because the DW1640 is discontinued.... but if it was still in production I'd be voting for it! :wink:

if your drive is making SMART errors, it's not a difficult thing to find out, plenty of programs will check SMART for you.

thanks.
you can also use Western Digital's Data LifeGuard Diagnostics.
http://support.wdc.com/download/
http://support.wdc.com/download/?cxml=n&pid=999&swid=3 (windows version)
works also on non-WD drives (AFAIK).

hmm...haven't used DFT in a while, should download the latest version...

I honestly haven't even looked at any tests of the new Plextor drives, I just do so little burning now that I don't think I'd get another drive until mine dies (which it hasn't)
