CDRLabs finishes up the week with an in depth look at ASUS's new 16x DVD±RW, the DRW-1608P2. Based on the Pioneer DVR-110D, DW-1608P2 is capable of 16x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW and 6x DVD-RW writing speeds and has a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. More importantly, it's one of the first drives with the ability to write to both DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 8x. The DRW-1608P2 also includes features like 40x CD reading and writing speeds, 32x rewriting speeds, and support for technologies like FlextraLink and FlextraSpeed.
In this review we'll take a look at some of the features found on the DRW-1608P2 and see how it compares to some of the 16x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Does ASUS's new drive have what it takes? You'll have to read the review to find out.
