Conclusion: The BenQ DW1625 is the first rewriter we've seen that features HP's LightScribe disc-labeling technology, which uses the drive's CD laser to etch the surface of specially prepared media. The DW1625 also boasts competitive performance and ships with a terrific Nero 6.6 software suite.
Pros: Good performance. One of the first drives to incorporate LightScribe disc-labeling technology. Excellent Nero software bundle.
Cons: Lacks 16X DVD-R and 4X DVD+R DL support. LightScribe labels will fade with time. No color labeling.
Conclusion: Throughout this review, we saw some of the main capabilities of the DW1625 BenQ burner, apart from the LightScribe feature. Although similar to the 1620, a previous release from BenQ, it can not write -R media at 16X speed, as its max supported speed is 8X for that media type.
