Sony Optiarc AD-7260S 24x DVD±RW/RAM

CDRLabs
14 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Sony Optiarc drives have quite a following among enthusiasts and after having the AD-7260S in our 'Labs, it's easy to see why. While affordably priced, this new "Super-Multi" drive offers a healthy dose of features as well as some of the fastest DVD writing speeds available. The AD-7260S performed very well when writing to DVD+R and DVD-R media at 24x. At this speed, it took the drive a little more than 4 minutes to write an entire 4.7GB DVD.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 24x, Writes to DVD-R DL and DVD+R DL media at 12x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD-R and DVD+R media at 16x, Reads DVD-RW and DVD+RW media at 13x, Reads DVD-R DL and DVD+R DL media at 12x, Reads and writes to DVD-RAM media at 12x, Features 48x CD-R and 32x CD-RW writing speeds, Good selection of writing and rewriting speeds, Includes buffer underrun prevention...
