Here's a little preview to give you an idea of what to expect from Memorex's new 52x writer.
Here's a picture of the front. It's obviously a Lite-On if you couldn't tell.
How about a Nero screenshot? Yep, 6WS2 firmware. Only a 2048KB buffer too.
InfoTool. And yes, the drive supports Mt. Rainier.
How about some CD Speed graphs? First the drive writing using some Verbatim 48x media:
Check out those RPM's. The thing starts writing at 23x and spins at about 11,000 RPM. Not quite a 40x average writing speed though.
How about rewriting? It uses CAV like the TDK veloCD 48x.
And then reading. The seek times are similar to the other Lite-On based drives. The CPU usage is also a little on the high side like Lite-On's 48x writers.
Thats it for now. I'll be doing more tests later. If there's something you'd like to know (other than whether or not the drive can copy games), let me know.
If you're planning on linking to or using these pictures elsewhere and using our bandwidth, I'd prefer that you didn't. Please link back to this page instead.
