Thanks for all the Info on the drives. I have been testing DRU-820A and the BenQ DW1655. I have fund out there is not allot of information on the 820A. So i have been pushing both drives to the limits.
With all this testing i can now tell from the sound when a drive is struggling with it's task to failure.
My journey is almost over and i have it narrowed down two sweet candidates Sony DRU-820A and the BenQ DW1655
The only problem I'm having is i wanted the BenQ DW1655 with solid burn technology to win so far it's not so solid
I don't like Sony, this is the most difficult part, but I'm Happy it's BenQ underneath. The Sony faceplate will go, if i keep it.
I can use the most expensive and the cheepest media on the market, even DL with 820A it has yet to fail on anything but I'm still trying.
people say the 820a is not fast it is deceiving because it's vary quiet and spins slower once you compair it against ND-3550A, DW1655, DRW-1608P2, DUW1616L, fist thing i said was wow
Amazingly the DRU-820a is pulling ahead in allot of real world categories 3-4 more days of rigours testing i hope to have winner.
