Best Buy: Cd Burner

Recommended Posts

:D

 

My second Sony CD burner broke, so I decided to give up on Sony and try another brand. I bought BenQ 5232X CD-RW Burner. It turned out to be much better than sony.

While sony claim to burn in 52x speed, in reality it burns in 40x

BenQ does burn exactly as it claims, at 52x. Burning a 700MB takes me aout 2min. 32sec. and it comes with Nero express software, an excellent and easy burning tool.

I make boot CDs very easily with it.
