Conclusion: The Sony DRU-700A Dual Layer DVD writer improves upon the DRU product line by offering a better software package and faster write speeds than its predecessors. We found the DRU-700A to be a reliable and consistent drive throughout the testing process, trailing the Plextor PX-708A and Sony’s own DRU-530A drives by only a few seconds. We would like to have seen Sony include a dual layer disc with this drive as well as Apple OS support to polish off the overall package.
Pros: Reliable and consistent writing, strong software package
Cons: The Dual Layer format is not compatible with some DVD players
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.
