    for the price of the combo, u could probably get a dvd-rom and a vd-rw drive for cheaper, then less wear on each of them, and if one breaks, less cost to replace/

    i know i was just saying that the 2 would be cheaper, and probably better.

    52x cd-rw 20

    16x Dvd-Rom 18

    total about 40

    Combo drive 35

    on further inspection, about the same.

    If you was thinking about getting a combo drive, & haven't got a DVD R/RW, then buy that instead so you could burn CD & DVD's but also view DVD's & CD's.


    It will cost a bit more for it, if you get a branded name you will look around 90+, if not fussed about make you could get it hell of a lot cheaper. Now only if i could remember where i saw the item dead cheap

    heh.. theres a coincidence... I had a LG 8X Burner too.
    I just upgraded it to a MSI 48X Combo drive.

    The only thing i dont like about my MSI is the fact that its not region free and theres no firmware hack for it yet.

    And the Software bundle is a bit outdated... Nero 5 and PowerDVD 5

    But it was very reasonably priced and does all I need, so I can't bitch too hard.

    Just discovered theres a MSI 52X version out now. Check it out

    If you liked your LG...

    Then why not get an LG combo drive?

    Or even a DVD burner:

    I'm surprised...both Lite-On and Plextor have very good reps and get positive reviews.
    I have a Lite-On CD-RW and it's been very reliable ( no coasters yet&#33.
