Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AOpen COM5232 Combo Drive Review - AOpen COM5232 Combo Drive Review
Tue, July 20 2004 | 2:42PM | PermaLink Feedback?
For many people, CD writers are a necessary tool that's depended upon almost daily. I know I burn three to four CD's a week, and if I didn't have access to a CD-RW, I couldn't do my job properly. It's true that DVD burners are now available, but DVD media is still relatively expensive per disc, and the saturation of DVD-ROM's in the market is quite a bit lower than regular CD-ROM's. The AOpen 5232 Combo offers users a very flexible platform, first the drive is extremely fast at reading both CD and DVD media. Second with the ability to burn CD's it's also great for backing up crucial data.With a retail price of $55 CDN ($42 US) the AOpen 5232 Combo drive is quite a steal, sure it's a few dollars more than a regular CD-RW, but it's a lot cheaper than buying both a CD-RW and then a separate DVD-ROM!
