2 x Optical Drive Reports

| Storage News | Posted: Sep 9, 2002 9:28 am

HardwareZone.com comes along first with their review of the RICOH MP5125A DVD+RW drive.

If you'd read about our recent HP dvd200e DVD writer based on the DVD+RW technology, you should have known that to date there are currently three primary DVD formats - DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW and DVD-RAM. Although the DVD Forum have only approved the DVD-R/-RW and DVD-RAM formats, the DVD+RW Alliance have been pretty aggressive in garnering market acceptance for their own format. Until next year, when a single DVD format will be finalized, users for now will have to choose between these three writing formats.

The Tech Report then comes along with their Samsung optical drive comparison.

A lot of optical drives may look very similar, but performance can vary quite a bit, despite advertised speeds. Today we're looking at two optical drives from Samsung, a screaming-fast 40X CD-RW, and an all-in-one CD-RW/DVD combo drive that's no slouch in the speed department, either. How do the drives compare? Which is faster where?
