48x24x48 vs 52x24x52 CDRW

  1. Jun 5, 2003 #1
    i decided to upgrade my cdrw,
    48x vs 52x price difference is 10USD in malaysia.
    from articles of pc magazine i read, the write speed is not much different.
    i think 48x is enough.

    I recall reading the same thing, although I don't recall where I read it. 48x will burn your CD's plenty fast...save the 10 bucks and go to lunch after you buy it

    48x and 52x are blazing and you won't see too much of a difference. I have a 40x and can write a complete cd in about 3-4 minutes.

    To burn 650MB CD by cd-spying on the fly, it takes 3min 15sec if i set 48x recording speed, is this acceptable ?[?]

    I read an article in Maximum PC about this same deal. You may want to search for it at http://www.maximumpc.com The actual difference is only by seconds!

    I think this is up to you....:wink:
    Currently I do it in about 15 min (I use an older Teac...) so you are way ahead....
