Well there you have it, the facts speak for themselves. Both companies put out a fantastic drive, both capable of maintaining high speed recording as well as supporting higher speeds when 16x DVD recordable media hits, today, only 8x are available, and both the ASUS and the Gigabyte drives work 100% with them.
ASUS held the upper hand with 4/5 wins, though only by a few seconds in most, it was able to keep well ahead of the Gigabyte in Dual Layer burning, so if Dual Layer is your thing, this drive is currently the cream of the crop.
Gigabyte on the other hand holds the crown for aesthetics, with an interchangeable face plate for black or white cases, it sure makes colour coding a bit easier, if looks are your thing, Gigabyte takes the win.
