When a massive installed base of a particular product holds the potential to save the collective world literally, um, minutes per day, that's when you know you're on to something. The 20x DVD burner is coming people, and Lite-On is preparing the charge to make these puppies shoot right past today's 16x drives (and tomorrow's 18x drives) so you can burn a DVD in about five minutes and thirty seconds compared to the six-some-odd minutes it takes today. Oh, and no, that's not one of the drives off to the right, that's some laggard's burner that doesn't record at 26 megs per second -- what a loser.
