Sony DRX-S77U 8x USB 2.0 DVD±RW/RAM

1 July 2010
  • Conclusion: After having the DRX-S77U in the 'Labs for a few weeks, I'm left with mixed feelings. While Sony has delivered a compact and lightweight DVD writer with good looks, impressive specs and a number of useful features, the drive's power requirements limit where it can be used. For a portable drive, the DRX-S77U performed relatively well when writing to DVD+R and DVD-R media, taking a little more than 12 minutes to burn an entire 4.7GB DVD.
  • Pros: Writes to DVD±R media at 8x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD±R DL media at 6x, Reads single layer DVD-ROM's at 8x, Reads DVD±R, DVD±RW and DVD±R DL media at 8x, Reads and writes to DVD-RAM media at 5x, Features 24x CD-R and CD-RW writing speeds, Good selection of writing and rewriting speeds, Includes buffer underrun prevention technology, Good DVD±R and CD-R writing quality, Compact and lightweight design, Supports bitsetting...
  • Cons: Not USB powered, Questionable writing quality with some DVD+R DL media, Reads DVD-Videos at only 4x, Cannot set the book type of DVD+R or DVD+RW media, Overburns to only 92:57
