Hammer Storage MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW-9585 DVD Burner Review

I just posted the article Hammer Storage MATSHITA DVD-RAM SW-9585 DVD Burner Review.

This DVD burner made by Panasonic is a ‘Super Multi’ drive, meaning that it supports reading and writing to almost all major formats including CD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R DL and DVD-RAM. How does this burner stand up to the competition? Please read the review to find out!

Nice review! Really bad for using SL DVD media. :frowning:

What a coincidence: " Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R-DL-RITEK-D01-001] "

You might want to turn off emoticons for :r in Ritek and Ricoh and :* for the Optodisc ram Looks like overall bad burner to me. I’m not buying something like that, looks like the burn ZCLV is slow too.

emoticons removed, thx

Question? Why remove the emoticons? Ritek are bad, full stop!

Zcool - are you having issues w/ your SW-9585?

I’ve had good luck with mine, as long as I burn at about 4x… until recently, when after burning a backup copy of an ISO file, it no longer recognizes disks. I/O error.
