10 DVD Burners: 16x and Dual-Layer - or Nothing!

CD-R Writing

Handicapped by writing speeds that are lower than those of the other burners, the Asus and Pioneer came in last with times of over 4 minutes. The record was set by the Lite-On burner, with 2 minutes and 38 seconds to burn an 80-minute CD! Out of the 10 burners, five clocked times of under 3 minutes and four came in under 4 minutes.

    Please report noise levels in optical drive reviews. This is a big factor in which drive to buy for some people. My current DVD burner sounds like a jet engine for 5 minutes after putting a disc in.
