    expensive... but damn, thats a lot of support.

    Those specs for DVD/CD - are they read only, or burn as well?

    Why do companies manufacture products like this and expect the masses to jump on it? :shadedshu

    These are the types of optical disks it READS and the speeds it reads them at maximum.

    add burning at the above speeds and it'd be worth it.

    Was hoping this was a burner as well. Then that price would be more than justifiable.

    Look at the photo.
    It's a CD-DVD burner, it even has LightScribe logo!

    The drive has the compact disc rewritable logo on it so it can definately burn cd's. (unless the picture is wrong.

    The picture is wrong. Read the link. They are releasing one that's only a reader for $345 internal or $440 external, and they're releasing an external burner for around $640, with the internal being a little cheaper (but no price given).

    My guess is that's just a photo of the burner instead.
