"We clearly underestimated the common usage of WMV formats in our previous version. We were expecting people to use much more exotic formats when in fact they are still using a lot the default software that comes with Windows! With new support of WMV3, the creation of a DVD from files of your digital camera becomes a 1 click task." says Claire Waledisch which manages a part of the technical support in VSO-Software. Once again VSO-Software listens to their users and has implemented their requests.

While Samsung in its BD drive assembly blocks two lenses (one for CDs and DVDs, one for the BD), NEC uses a particular in the HR-1100A only for all three formats. It is however substantially heavier obviously with so a combination lens to select the old CDs and DVDs. The test sample, which corresponds to the level of development of the past summer according to NEC, was noticeable by very high access times, which varied between 142 ms with the CD-R, 370 ms with the HD DVD and 1057 ms with a DVD-9. NEC promises that this with the final version smaller are to fail.NEC obviously has some work to do before the HR-1100A is released later this year.

HD DVDs reads the drive assembly with double speed and comes thereby on an average transfer rate of 8,7 MByte/s. With a DVD-9 it reaches 6.2 MByte/s, with an DVD-R 7.4 MByte/s and with an CD-R 3.7 MByte/s - not towering above, but acceptable.
The two new features - SolidBurn and Overspeed introduced with this drive seems to be an excellent combination. If a DVD±R is good enough for 16x, it will write them at 16x. If not it will adjust and lower the writing speed, until a new suitable speed have been found and learned.The DVDR1648 impressed CD Freaks enough to earn their "Safe Buy" award.
