Today CDRLabs takes a long overdue look at AOpen's 16x DVD±RW, the DUW1608/AAR. Along with support for the DVD+R DL format, the drive is capable of 16x DVD+R, 8x DVD-R and 4x DVD±RW writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. The DUW1608 also has some of the fastest CD reading and writing speeds found on a DVD writer. The drive reads and writes CD's at 48x and rewrites at a blazing 32x.
In this review we'll take a look at some of the features found on the DUW1608 and see how it compares to some of the 16x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Is the DUW1608 the best bang for your buck? You'll have to read the review to find out.
