Since i haven`t read anything about the new Toshiba DVD-Rom here are some specs...
Epox KTA 3 with 512 MB
Dawicontrol Ultra DMA 100 Controller Raid 1 with 2 WD 400 BB HDDs.
Toshiba 1612 DVD Rom on first IDE Port Master
Plextor 24-10-40 on secondary IDE Port Master
First i must say this Drive works like a charme
Toshiba has made a real good Drive it`s still 100% Clone CD Compatible.
Data Transfer and seek Time are equal to the Toshiba 1502 DVD-Rom(which i had first).
The new Toshiba now features High Speed Audio grabbing here are the results with Nero CD Speed:
End: 26.03x sometime over 30x on self burned ones
Dae Quality: 10 Accurate Stream: yes
The bad thing is the Drive ripps DVDs only on 2X like the Toshiba 1502.
So if your looking for a DVD-Rom that is 100% CloneCD compatible and has high Speed Audio grabbing this is the one to choose.
Hope this little review could help a little bit...
For more Specs post here,i`ll try to test it...
