Aopen CRW 5224 ... write and read large data files as easily as you would from floppies. The CRW5224 CD/ReWriter drive offers unprecedented performance to handle today's demands by reading CDs at up to 52X speed, writing CD-R discs at super 52X and CD/RW discs at fastest 24X speed. CRW5224 writes a 700 MB CD-R disc within about 2 minutes and a half. The CRW5224 supports all major CD formats, offering the user full backward-compatibility through the huge installed base of CD-ROM drives and media. What's more, recorded CD-RW media can be played in a DVD player, maintaining future compatibility.
Just Link technology overcomes many of the issues in 52x and higher writing speeds to CDs, and can prevent underruns by predicting when they may occur and then taking control of the writing process. JustSpeed is the function that prevents writing error when high writing speed (24x or faster) is selected. Mount Rainier enables native OS support of data storage on CD-RW. This makes the technology far easier to use and allows the replacement of the floppy. An improved anti-heat design and the OPC design boost recording reliability. Optimum Power Control continually monitors signal levels during recording and adjusts laser power to compensate for a dirty disc. This feature ensures a flat signal, significantly enhancing reliability.

When you start to add up everything technical that's gone wrong recently, like my £350 Sony DVD 525 player, which lasted just three years, you soon see where the money goes! Then I got to thinking - these two items alone have cost me £3 a week (of my net income) to own in theory. Fortunately, technology redeems itself by moving on, making things cheaper in the process. For example, ... Read the complete review

This is a reliable drive available at a very good price at the moment at (www.dabs.com). I purchased one just a couple of months ago, have used it to burn many cds since then and i have no problems. Easy to install & easy to use. I've burned probably 60-70 cd's on it so far and had no problems with the drive itself, only with pc memory and system resources etc. The main negative observation i have is that it does eject cds rather quickly, this could lead to a wearing down of the open and closing mechanism over time.
