Fastest 32X packet writing CD-RW drive?

Postby numcrun on Sat Apr 16, 2005 7:44 am

Hi, I am going to buy a 52X32X52X CD-RW drive. It will be used for one thing only: to back up 60GB of data every day using Nero's InCD packet writing software. I would like to know the fastest drive for this purpose. I was going to buy the Lite-On, but then read in this review


the following:

"Unfortunately, the LTR-52327S wasn't as fast when packet writing with InCD. At 32x, the drive's times were about 38 seconds slower than what we saw with Nero. I asked Lite-On about this and they really didn't have an answer for me. If I had to make a guess, I'd say that the drive uses CAV when packet writing. "

There was only 1 faster drive in this review, but it was a TEAC, and all thier other consumer electronics is junk in my experience.

Are there any comparisons of this feature anywhere or does someone know?

I know its a DVD burner..but the TS-H552U by Samsung was pretty impressive with it's 32x packet writing (one of it's strengths...one....)

check out the reviews of Plextor drives, they have traditionally been very good performers at CDRW.
check out the Plextor Premium.
unfortunately when Ian wrote his review
there was no 32x media.
maybe some users out there have experiences of it to share.

There was when I tested the external Premium-U. :D

Otherwise check out the ASUS CRW-5232AS. If I remember right, it performed well when packet writing.
