SR readers by now are familiar with Lite-On Corporation. We reviewed their 16/10/40 CD-RW on August 23rd and their 16/48 DVD-ROM drive on the 12th of September. We've also got a 24/10/40 burner in the works. One thing has become clear in our looks at their products: they generally offer a lot of bang-for-the-buck.
Let's turn now to Lite-On's 52X CD-ROM. Today's fastest single-beam CD readers top out at 56X, with 52X readers providing some auditory respite with only a small sacrifice in performance. Perhaps this is why Lite-On forgoes a 56X model in their lineup.
Join us now as we pit the LTN526S against top 56X and 52X models from the competition!
