    Question Plextor premium CD-RW ide or usb2

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've heard that plextor is the only way to go when burning audio.
    The question is are there any downsides on using an external usb2 CD-RW. For now i don't need an external CD-RW, but in the future i might need.

    Any advantages on IDE over usb2 ?

    Thanks

    not to my knowledge other than the use of system resources is a lil more when using usb. but the systems today have so much ram that it barely even matters. lite-on make awesome burners as well.

    Or yamaha, either way you pay through the nose for what should be standard features on any burner (****n consumer driven market).

    Yeah the brand of blank CD-Rs you are using makes the biggest difference. Here is a good article and test data from Glenn Meadows on different burners and different blank CD-Rs.
