Despite its relatively high speed ratings, the AOpen
52x32x52x CD-RW is very noise friendly for those of you who are sound-sensitive. Even
when reading a disc, the drive was nice and quiet.
By default the beige
faceplate comes installed, and if you want to change the colour to black or silver, it
can be done quite easily. Printed instructions are included with walk you through the process
step by step.
Nero's InfoTool is a very handy program that tells you all
the features of your optical devices. As you can see here the AOpen CRW5232/ARR
52x32x52x CD-RW drive supports these read formats; CD-R and CD-RW media as well as VideoCD,
CD Text, CD+G and C2 Errors while being able to write to CD-R, CD-RW and
Mount Rainier. It also has Buffer Underrun Protection.
