Nine internal DVD burners and Blu-ray drives tested

Hardware.Info

  • Excerpt: With so many cheap and portable storage options available, not to mention all the free cloud and file transfer services, people use DVD-readers and burners less and less. But it can be quite practical to have, even if it's just to (re-)install Windows. We tested 9 internal DVD and Blu-ray drives, so you know what you should pick when you assemble that new desktop PC.

  • Excerpt: ROM drives don't seem to move forward as fast as a lot of other technology we look at, but today we're looking at the iHAS524 which carries with it some serious numbers that could no doubt break the speed barrier when it comes to ROM usage. Firing up Nero DiscSpeed 10, we're able to see the numbers the iHAS524 offers us. Checking a copy of Windows 7 at 3.3GB, we managed to hit a read speed of 14x.

LiteOn iHAS524 DVD-RW Internal Drive Review

Zath
28 May 2010
  • Excerpt: LiteOn were kind enough to send us one of their internal DVD-RW drives, the iHAS524, to review. In an extremely saturated market, it’s difficult to make such a product stand out, but the LiteOn iHAS524 comes with LabelTag technology , which promises extra functionality over standard drives.

  • Conclusion: Last but certainly not least, the iHAS524 supports LabelTag. The feature will "burn" circular text labels or images right on the data side of a regular single-layer DVD or CD. The feature works well and it is seamlessly integrated within the bundled disc burning application. LabelTag is fast and the results are great as soon as you are using the feature in order to add a simple text label on your disc, instead of adding a sticker on it.
  • Pros: Super-all-write DVD/CD burner, Good bundled software, Fast CD/DVD reader, Reads defected DVDs adequately, Fast CD/DVD burner, Supports Book Type, Supports overburning with CD-R, SmartErase, LabelTag features
  • Cons: Average CD-R writing quality, DVD+R SL/DL writing quality, Average reading peformance with defected CD-Rs, Does not support overburning with DVD
