Sony DRU-810A 16x DVD±RW

8 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Over the past year or so, we've taken a look at a number of Sony's DVD writers. While these drives offered a good mix of performance and features, things like writing quality prevented them from getting top marks in our reviews. Needless to say, this wasn't the case with their new 16x DVD±RW. Based on the award winning BenQ DW1640, the DRU-810A is one of Sony's best drives to date. Like its BenQ counterpart, the DRU-810A can write to both DVD+R and DVD-R media at 16x.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD±R media at 16x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL media at 8x, Writes to DVD-R DL media at 4x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 16x, Reads DVD±R media at 16x, Reads DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 12x, Features 48x CD-R and 32x CD-RW writing speeds, Very good transfer speeds with all types of CD media, Excellent DAE speeds, Good CD writing quality, Features Sony's Power-Burn technology, Supports 99 minute media, Good se...
  • Cons: Cannot write to 8x DVD±R media at 16x, Lacks the advanced features found on the BenQ DW1640, Doesn't support the Mt. Rainier format, Has a 2048KB buffer

Sony DRU-810A 16x Internal DVD Writer

  • Conclusion: Being a global brand and particularly one with a long history in optical storage dating back to the golden era of CDs, it's easy to see why Sony has always been a brand to look up to as far as optical storage is concerned. This is all the more so when Sony is also one of the front-runners of industrial design, and more intimately pertinent happens to be the alpha company leading the worldwide push for the Blu-ray standard.

Sony DRU-810A

23 November 2005
  • Conclusion: Le graveur de DVD interne affiche de bonnes cadences en écriture, notamment lors de la copie de données sur des DVD double couche. C’est aussi un lecteur de disques optiques performant.
