Well after 9 years of wear and tear my old CD writer died on me.  I got some gift cards for Christmas and decided to use them to buy a new Burner.  I couldn’t believe how light it was compared to my old one.

Anyways, I got it installed yesterday while I was at work and got it working.  I burned a full CD last night in a fraction of the time it took my old CD burner to do it.  The old one took 40 minutes to burn and verify.  This one did it in about 10 minutes.

The old CD Burner cost me $350 while this one only cost me $32.50.  CD Burners joins the list of technology that is cheaper to throw away and buy another one instead of repairing the old one.
