Asus CRW5224A

I would like to buy one of these writers as per the PCAdvisor review last month, but 2 questions, in the mag it is about £30.00, but on this website it is £70.00, but my biggest problem is I cannot find it anywhere to buy!!!
Some places advertise it but when you click on the link it's really a CRW5232 instead. Any help anyone?

Must be a mis-pront...

For a kick off that review on

is nearly 1 year old so any quoted prices will be nonsensical.

Jester2K - the Dabs one you link to is the External version of the drive.

The internal in the PCA review has been upgraded to the CRW5232[ie 32 rewrite speed as increased from 24]. The drive body has also been shortened.

I imagine you'll be hard pressed to find a 5224 now as in the fast-moving components market it's probably regarded as old stock/obsolete.

That would explain it then, I will get the 5232 instead, so thanks for that. 5232 is only £26.00 + vat & dely so that's cool too.
