For this test, our standard procedure is to use Nero Burning ROM 188.8.131.52 and the high speed RW media supplied by the manufacturer. File size is exactly 660152 kBytes (645 MB). Writing method is TAO.
As Waitec does not bundle any media with the writer, we tried our luck first with Yamaha's ultra-fast RW media. Even though we had deactivated the smartburning function, we were unable to write at 12x speed. However, we were successful using Liteon's high-speed RW media.

The FrisbyII is a good minute faster than a 10x rewriter. Hardly surprising, though, since the CRW-F1ux is a 24x writer.
CD-DA - The Classic Audio CD
Our audio CD image contains 20 tracks with a total playing time of 79 minutes, 4 seconds. The CD-DA is burned in DAO mode with CD-Text content.
In this discipline, too, this compact writer has the edge

Summary of Writing Performance, Part I
Waitec's FrisbyII turned out to be a fast writer, turning in the kind of writing performance that is comparable to 44x writers. On the negative side, we should mention the background noise, which reminded us of a dustbuster.
