Optorite have put together a fantastic CD-RW unit for around $100 US (roughly $200 AU) price tag. This puts CD-RW support for your PC within the average user's price range.
Performance wise, the drive is a little slower when accessing CD's than our MSI model, but only just noticeable. Installation was as simple as placing the unit into a free 5.25" rack, screw it into place, connect the IDE cable and turn on the PC. Widows detects the drive automatically and is able to get you access to it within a matter of seconds of boot up. Installing the software for recording was just as easy.
We used a number of makes of CD-R media for compatibility, including Mitsumi, TDK, Kodak, Verbatim and Pioneer - all of which worked flawlessly at 48x.
In conclusion, this unit is for just about anyone looking for a cheap and fast CD-RW unit.
- SMART-BURN Technology
- Low Level of Vibration
- Worked with all 48x compatible media we tested
- 48x media not always available in retail stores (usually in enthusiast stores)
