Sony DRU-700A

PC Magazine
21 May 2004
  • Conclusion: Sony is way ahead of the curve with the first double-layer DVD recorder to ship in North America. The DRU-700A offers superior performance and functionality at a reasonable price, but it will still be some time until the DVD+R DL format itself can be considered wrinkle-free.
  • Pros: Dual-layer recording; terrific software bundle; good DVD-burning performance.
  • Cons: Single- and dual-layer compatibility problems; DL media expensive and scarce; slow CD ripping.

CNET
30 August 2004
  • Summary: Der erste Doppelschicht-DVD-Brenner von Sony erfüllt seine Aufgabe insgesamt recht ordentlich, die mangelnde Kompatibilität von gebrannten Double-Layer-Medien schränkt die Nutzbarkeit der Funktion jedoch ein.
  • Pros: beschreibt Double-Layer-Medien, gute Gesamtleistung
  • Cons: gebrannte Double-Layer-Medien lassen sich in einigen Geräten nicht abspielen, kein Kopfhörer-Ausgang und kein Lautstärkeregler an der Frontblende

Sony DRU-700A

CNET
6 July 2004
  • Conclusion: Bon graveur et lecteur de DVD, le DRU-700A est aussi l’un des premiers graveurs capable de copier des DVD vidéo sur un seul DVD vierge de 8,2 Go dit double couche. Un excellent, mais non l’unique choix de graveur à l'heure actuelle.
