BenQ DW1655 16x DVD±RW

24 July 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.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD±R media at 16x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL media at 8x, Writes to DVD-R DL media at 4x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R media at 16x, Reads DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 12x, Features 48x CD-R and 32x CD-RW writing speeds...
  • Cons: Not as fast as other drives when WOPC is enabled, Questionable writing quality with some DVD+R DL media, Cannot write to 2.4x DVD+R DL media at 8x, Has a 2048KB buffer, Documentation could be better
