HiVal sucked back in 97 (and I like Paul had a POS LS-120 from them)
They got bought out in 98 or 99. Forget who. They started to rock, and for cheaply too, I might add.
Then the owner got bought, and all of the products from them suck ass. I cant recall who it was though.
Nonetheless, unless they really changed since last year -- two thumbs down.

Thanks guys; I THOUGHT that price was too good to be true. BTW: I got my Ricoh working again; all I had to do was remove and re-install X-CD Roast.
curses!! that did not work for me and my azus drive!
The cheapest CD-RW on the market (in my country at least) is the Lite-on series.
First of all, the hardware for the 24 - 48x (40x at least) is the same, so buying a 24speed model and flashing the fireware is the same as buying a higher speed model... there's NO DIFFERENCE what so ever...
So get one of those babies, they are CHEAP even for the high speed version, and the Linux support is EXELLENT - plus the quality of the burner itself is superb !

Is that right? So, I just need to flash my 32x liteon to make it 40x?
That's what I have heard, and I know that vendors like LG does this too. But be careful.
