BenQ DW1655 16x DVD±RW

CDRLabs
12 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Last spring, I reviewed BenQ's first LightScribe enabled DVD writer, the DW1625. While the ability to burn images and text onto the tops of discs was impressive, the DW1625's performance left me wanting more. Fortunately, that wasn't the case with the DW1655. While affordably priced, the drive delivers the performance and features that BenQ has become known for.

  • Summary: In the past we've associated BenQ with good-value products designed to sell quickly, rather than to produce top performance. The DW1655 suggests the manufacturer now has loftier aims.

  • Excerpt: After the DW1640 released several months ago, BenQ expands its optical storage range with yet another release, an upgrade to the DW1625, the DW1655. A quick look at the drive's specifications, will reveal that the main upgrades from the previous release are 16X for DVD -R up from 8X, 8X up from 4X for +RW, 6X from 4X for -RW, 8X from 2.4X for DVD +R DL, while now also supporting DVD -R DL at 4X.

  • Conclusion: Nie było sensu kończyć testów DW1655 gdyż napęd ten już raz został przetestowany. Jak to? Otóż mechanika DW1650 i DW1655 jest dokładnie taka sama. Różnica to obecność (fizyczna) jednego modułu w DW1655, którego nie ma (fizycznie) w DW1650. Uprzedzając pytania, przerobienie DW1650 do wersji obsługującej LightScribe nie jest możliwe. Jako że wyniki obu najnowszych nagrywarek BenQ są identyczne nie ma sensu rozwlekać podsumowania.
