Three Generations Compared: Is Your DVD Burner Outdated?

Benchmark Results: Sequential Read Performance

All three drives are limited to a 16x read speed, which is why the time required to copy 4.31GB onto a hard drive was very much the same. A five-second difference is basically no difference in the real world.

We received comparable results when we copied 6.26GB off a double-layer DVD. There are almost no differences in write performance.
