Warning to people who use cheap CD-Rs and high speed drives: This is Plextor’s take on high speed reading/writing: Reading CDs at 52x will shorten the device’s lifetime and will produce a higher noise level. Furthermore, at this high speed (10.400 rpm at 52x), low quality or scratched CDs could explode in the drive.

Although a rare occurence, if Plextor recommends against high speed drive reading – I would heed the warning when using those cheap $0.99 50 pack ATT CDRs with somewhat important data…
