  • Conclusion: Over the last few years, we've taken a look at a number of ASUS's DVD writers. While many of them impressed us, others didn't perform as well as we would have liked. Fortunately, the DRW-1608P3S falls into the first category rather than the latter.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 16x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 8x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R media at 12x, Reads DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 8x, Reads and writes to DVD-RAM media at 5x, Features ...
  • Cons: Reads DVD videos at only 5x, Cannot set the book type of DVD+R or DVD+RW media, Documentation could be better, Only a 2000KB buffer, No digital audio output, Overburns to only 94:27

  • Conclusion: Some time ago, the Pioneer 109 burst on the scene as the fastest DL writer on the market. Since then, no other drive with 6X DL support has managed to improve on its writing time.
