Hey guys, I read that with UDMA/33 writers, you cannot reach speeds higher than 12x (and this even when you’re lucky) when connecting via USB 2.0. How does LG, BenQ, etc. achieve the required transfer rates then? Their external products advertise 16x writing speed and I am sure 18x external drives will follow soon.
Also, why is there such a limitation for optical drives, while external HDDs can transfer faster?
