The W0404A from Gigabyte was a candidate in our first big burner test . We conducted the tests again with the newest firmware updates; not much has changed in the meantime.
According to the website, the recording speed for DVD+RWs is 4x; however, we were only able to record the same 2x result we got in our first test.
The package contains the same Nero Version 5 as before, a blank +RW DVD and the CyberLink Multimedia Pack including PowerDVD and PowerProducer.
