I am very pleased with my DW1620. I burned a lot of crappy media with only 2 “coasters” who are able to play in my home DVD player but not on my computer. That’s OK, these are crappy Princo’s…
I was also able to burn very good MCC003 8x@12x and 16x. I scan every media after burning and rarely got something below the 90’s.
I have an older computer than many of you and yes, I plan to upgrade soon!
I have a Celeron 900MHz running on a MSI 694T Pro Motherborad with 576Mb of SDRAM PC133 running at 100MHz FSB… I also have a WD Caviar SE 160Gb and a LG CED-8120b 12x CD-RW.
The problem is that I saw very good burst rate test with some of yours posts, but I only am able to get 13MB/s with brand new cables (was 12MB/s with 3 years old cables)…
What is the problem? My mother board have a blue and a white IDE port… May be ATA100 and ATA33? here is a link to my Motherboard’s spec : http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=694T_PRO&class=mb
If you have some suggestions, I will be happy to hear them as long as these are not : upgrade your computer!!!
Here is the test :
