Liteon SOHW-832S 8x Dual Layer DVD+/-RW Drive Review

3D Xtreme
1 September 2004
  • Summary: The Liteon SOHW-832s breezed past the 8x BenQ Drive when burning at 8x. The 832s also burns –R media at 4x and is Dual Layer compatible – once media becomes available this will be a much more attractive feature. The lack of Dual Layer media on the market is the only reason many people aren’t moving to a Dual Layer Drive, once the licensing issues are ironed out I’m sure Dual Layer will gain popularity.

LITE-ON SOHW-832S (DVD+/-RW with DL)

Hardware Zone
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: During media read tests, the LITE-ON SOHW-832S did raised a couple of concerns with its seek time for CDs and DVDs. Although the drive did meet its rated seek time at 1/3 stroke for CDs and DVDs, an achievement not all optical drives can flaunt, it however scored rather poorly with its full stroke read tests. CPU resource usage were found to be low with the exception of the audio CD test being our only gripe in this area.

  • Conclusion: LiteON SOHW-832S Dual DVD±RW Recorder - Page 21 Conclusion The LiteON SOHW-832S is the first ever LiteON recorder that supports DVD+R DL writing. The new format has been highly awaited from many users as an alternative medium for storage, mostly movies with 1:1 process. For this use, the LiteON SOHW-832S is very good. DVD+R DL writing worked like a charm and when the initial media prices drop, many users will enjoy it.

Double-Layer-DVD-Brenner: Lite-On SOHW-832S

CNET
10 September 2004
  • Summary: Der Lite-On SOHW-832S ist ein guter DVD-Brenner, die Double-Layer-Brenntechnologie ist mit ihrer mangelhaften Kompatibilität jedoch noch nicht ausgereift genug, um die Investition zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt zu rechtfertigen.
  • Pros: Brennt Double-Layer-Medien, Gute Gesamtperformance, Preiswerter als andere Double-Layer-Laufwerke
  • Cons: Gebrannte Double-Layer-DVDs lassen sich auf einigen Geräten nicht abspielen, Anleitung zum Brennen von Double-Layer-Medien fehlt, Auf Support-Website fehlen Laufwerk-spezifische Informationen, Keine deutsche Website

Lite-on SOHW-832S

  • Excerpt: Certaines innovations ne réservent pas que de bonnes surprises. La gravure sur DVD double couche par exemple est de celles-là. Grâce à la présence de deux couches de stockage sur une même face, les nouveaux supports DVD+R DL (Double Layer, double couche en français) doublent certes les capacités de stockage, mais ils mettent trois fois plus de temps à se remplir !
