CDRLabs kicks off the new year with a review of NEC's first "Super-Multi" drive, the ND-4550A. Featuring some of the fastest reading and writing speeds available, the drive is capable of 16x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW, 8x DVD+R DL and 6x DVD-R DL writing speeds and has a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. Staying true to the "Super-Multi" specifications, the ND-4550A can also read and write to DVD-RAM media at 5x.
In this review we'll take a look at some of the features found on the ND-4550A and see how it compares to some of the 16x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Does NEC's new "Super-Multi" drive have what it takes? You'll have to read the review to find out.
The guys at CD Freaks have taken a look at ASUS's new 16x DVD±RW, the DRW-1608P2. Here's what they had to say about this Pioneer DVR-110D based drive:
The ASUS DRW-1608P2, which is based on Pioneer DVR-110D, is one of the world's first burners to support 8x write speed on DVD-R DL media. The drive also supports 8x write speed on DVD+R DL media with very good results. The write time to complete the Dual/Double Layer burn is also pretty fast.
We too have a review of the DRW-1608P2 in the works. In the mean time, head on over to CD Freaks and check out their review.
