    I was at Wally World tonight and picked up 2 10 packs of
    Imation 4x Write CD-RW's with slim jewel cases for $12.00
    a pack..
    I can't see buying no name brands when you can buy the best
    this cheap! [​IMG]

    the downside... they are 4x.
    I just got a TDK VeloCD 32x/10x/40x at CompUSA for $120 today (after $30 mail-in rebate)
    32x writing CDRs. Full CD... 3 minutes FLAT. [​IMG]

    Rob,

    I just bought that exact same burner today myself. I won't get it installed until at least Sunday, but I'm curious to hear what you think of it after you've had a chance to play with it for awhile.

    Rob,
    I burnt a whole 72 minute cd on my NEC Burner at 4x it only
    took 11 whole minutes.. I think for the minimal time diffrence
    I will stick with 4x media (even though I have a 32x12x40) [​IMG]

    actually... I just have to stare at this CDRW for about another month... I am still assembling my new computer (AMD ATHLON 1800+, 512 DDR, Soundblaster Audigy, GeFORCE3 Ti500) [​IMG]
    I am just reading reviews and packaging so far [​IMG]

    Why waste the money on a Ti500 when the Ti200 is nipping
    at it's heels for a lot less cash?
    You can overclock the Ti200 beyond the Ti500's specs and
    save a hundred or so bucks to spend elsewhere. IMHO of course!

    CompUSA has a 10-pack of Smart Buy 10X CDRW's for around $7-$8 that I've had good luck with (using it with my Liteon 24x10x40x CDRW burner). For what I do (making VCDs), being back to re-burn CDRWs save me a lot on coasters.
