    Hi All

    Dumb qn sorry! - I am currently looking to buy a new internal CD RW drive as I have an error on my current internal drive. When looking on on various sites for a replacement/new drive - I see on the technical specifications relating to the units something like...

    Read Speed 52x

    Write Speed 52x

    CD / DVD Rewrite Speed 24x

    ... now, on more expensive units, the bottom figure is around 10x.

    Can someone explain what these figures represent please and are higher or lower figures better spec?? What should I be looking for?
