i just got the 32x10x40 and so far it will do 16x flawlessly but i dont have the cdr disc's that can be burnt any higher so i have no input on how fast it can burn reliable. I did burn about 30mb of files at 32x and it did so quite fine but i dont think thats enough to give an opinion. so far i like mine and would give it thumbs up [it has a purdy blue door] just like my start up buttons LOL
I've got the TDK 241040b, which is basically a rebadged liteon drive. It kicks SERIOUS butt. On a good CD, it will rip at about 8x at the beginning and be pushing 40x near the end, with no problems. I absolutely love the drive. Just make sure you get the 241040b version. I've not had a lick of problem from the drive. If you go to CDRINFO.COM, you'll see that the Liteons rate quite well. I don't think you'll have any complaints with it.
Don't think it'll work, Trey. The 32x is a different type of drive. It seems to be neither Sanyo (the original 24x) or Liteon (the B version). Wishful thinking though. Hehehe. Overclocking your CD Burner.
