It's been a long time since people have started recording and backing up things on to blank media. When hard disk space is an issue or you need to back data up to transfer it, a burner is vital to your computer. Although DVD burners are becoming cheaper as we shift over to more space on each media disc, CD burners should not be forgotten. CD's are still a world standard because of their flexibility. For example, mailing a CD costs a lot less than a DVD when you need to send something via snail mail. I personally do a lot of publishing work for my school and CD's are the cheapest solution when I need to send things with next day shipping. I remember when CD burners first came on the market. I got an early Phillips model that only had a speed of 2x. Today, CD burners seem to have stopped at a speed of 52x, which can burn a full 700mb CD in 2-3 minutes.

Gigabyte has their own version of a 52x burner. Sadly, I have never had the chance to play with a faster burner than my old Sony 16x. Even when I bought a DVD burner, it only burned my discs at a measly 24x. Today, we'll take a look at the Gigabyte B-5232A CDRW Burner/DVD ROM combo.
