I got a MD drive sometime back when they were on sale. I got my rebate and the drive has worked well into 1yr or more. However, I don't use it as much as I have in the past. I figure I burned about 80-90X and that's low to me. It's never shown a problem but then I tend to keep things in line. The only reason I brought it, because it was on sale, period. Until then, I never heard of MD drives and OfficeMax would exchange it if problems arose with its warranty period. I consider the time I had it and the amount of use, I've gotten my money's worth. I paid, $10 after rebate.
Anybody heard anything about the Mad Dog LIGHTNING 56X CD-ROM Drive. I'm looking for internal CD-ROM that can read CDs quickly, for gaming and converting to mp3. Is the mad dog good or should I go another route. I already have a DVD/CD RW combo drive, but have another expansion bay.
