24x DVD = 31.68MB/s. Thats really pushing the speeds US 2.0B can put out.

Never have I thought "Man, I wish my 16x DVD burner would burn faster" I'd rather spend the money on an internal BluRay/HD-DVD drive, same price and all lol.

Yeah, that's true. My old laptop came with a CD burner, I just swapped it with a DVD burner though, external sucks lol
