  • Conclusion: Like the DRW-1814BLT before it, the DRW-2014L1T has had its share of growing pains. Early reviews indicated that it suffered from many of the same performance issues as its predecessor. Instead of publishing our own less than flattering review, we put the DRW-2014L1T back on the shelf and gave ASUS a chance to address these issues. Since then, ASUS has released a series of firmware updates that have greatly improved the DRW-2014L1T's writing quality.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 20x, 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, Writes to DVD-RAM media at 14x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R and DVD-RAM media at 12x, Reads DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 8x, Features 48x CD-R and 32x CD-RW writing speeds, Low seek times, Supports ASUS's FlextraLink, FlextraSpeed and AVRS technologies, Supports bitsetting for DVD+R/RW and DVD+R DL media,...
  • Cons: High media requirements when writing at 20x, Questionable quality with some DVD±R DL media, Slower than other drives when writing to DVD±R DL and DVD-RAM media, Had a hard time reaching its rated speeds when reading pressed CD's, Reads CD-R media at only 40x, Documentation could be better
