    I haven't heard of Micro Advantage, but I'd recommend a Lite-on for a low priced, high quality CD-RW drive.

    Yep, I'd go with LiteOn or Sony myself (I just got a Sony 52x24x52).

    Meh, they don't even sell 52x CD's (I've got 48x's) and my reader only does 24x so for copying that's my limit (for now).

    Last time I burned a CD it burned ass slow though, and I don't know why. I was copying, so I set it at 24x, and it seriously burned at below 1x the whole time. Took 2 fucking hours to burn a 63 minute cd :ugh:

    i usually make an image of whatever i have to burn. faster, more reliable, and i can burn at max speeds.

    only takes me 6 mins to backup a cd.

    My Lite-On 52x24x52 usually only takes a bit more than 2 minutes, even when using a CD that's only rated for 16x and wouldn't even work in my old 8x4x32 Plextor. :wiggle: I :love: Lite-On

    Since Micro Advantage isn't one of the big manufacturers, I would hazard a guess that it is a rebadge of something else. I would do some online searches if I were you and find out if someone knows who made the original product. Lite-Ons get rebadged a lot.

    LiteOn == Sony I think... Anyway, yea, 2 minutes sounds about right if you're not limited by the speed of the drive you're copying off of or your CPU speed (I think this is part of the problem for me, slow old computer).

    I don't think Sony is rebadging Lite-Ons, but I could be wrong. It seems like the Sony drives usually come out with a completely different set of features from the Lite-On drives.

    :dunno:, that's what I read in another thread on here I think... Wouldn't suprise me if they were at least the same thing inside, even if each company assembles their own.
