Scsi over Eide everytime with a Cdr

17 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "...anyone thinking of buying a Yamaha Cdrw, go and buy the Scsi version if funds allow, you won't regret it.Out of all the Scsi Cdrw's I have ever bought the only one that I can honestly say I haven't had any problems with at all is the Yamaha. The ultra reliability of this piece of equipment is due to Yamaha's use of high quality parts and the usual high standard of build quality that we are so accustomed to from this company. The high capacity buffer ...

  • Excerpt: "I have a Yamaha 8424, (i.e 8 speed CR-R, 4 speed CD-RW, 24 speed CD-ROM). Being IDE based, it is relatively easy to install for those who are not scared to "have the lid off". It fits a standard 5.25" bay and comes with a twin IDE lead for connecting, usually to your second IDE connector on the motherboard. Mine seems to work perfectly well in tandem with a Creative DVD on the same cable, even though both instruction manuals tell you that their machine ...
  • Pros: Easy to fit and get working
  • Cons: Slightly flaky process .  Beermats !  Still not as fast in operation as a SCSI version

  • Excerpt: "I bought the Yamaha SCSi on the recommendation of a friend who also had one. SCSI CD-Rs are more reliable than IDE drives, and they are also faster too. To use this drive you also need a SCSI card installed in your computer, if you do not already have one, which will add about £30 onto the price. Otherwise the drive when I bought it 8 months agp was £130 but it could be less by now. It's easy enough to install, and comes with Adaptec Easy CD Creator ...
  • Pros: reliable and fast

  • Excerpt: "I bought the Yamaha CDRW 8424 3 months ago, and i must say that i couldnt have spent the money better, this drive is great. Installation is easy, just slot it into ur tower connect it to your ide cable and register it in the bios setting and thats it, windows will detect it and after that you have a fully functional cdrw drive. This whole process takes around 20 minutes depending on your experience with computers. This drive is very simple ...

  • Excerpt: "Why pay all that extra to have a scsi CD-R when eide are so cheap? That was my question to a friend of mine who has the model down, the 16x6x4x model. Reliability is the answer. With this scsi model, i got it from dabs.com so it had a scsi card in it [only an iwill, but it works] , it has 4mb cache, instead of the normal 2mb. Buffer underun i sthe cause of most coasters, so this is a bonus. You are also using a completely different bus to your hdd ...

Pourquoi hésiter plus longtemps ?

  • Excerpt: J'ai acheté ce graveur en Avril 2000, et j'en suis pleinement satisfait : il combine une grande vélocité avec une fiabilité à toute épreuve. De plus il peut être trouvé à 1650F en version boîte (i.e. : avec manuel, 1Cd, 1CDRW, une nappe IDE, et le logiciel Easy CD Creator 4). Que demander de plus. J'admets volontiers que Yamaha vient de sortir son successeur (le 8x8x24x), mais ce dernier est destiné a des personnes utilisant abondamment les CD réinscriptibles.
  • Pros: Fiabilité, Vitesse, Prix
  • Cons: vitesse en lecture un peu juste...

Yamaha CRW 8424S: Un must pour graver

Blackest, Dooyoo
5 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Yamaha, c'est la référence incontournable de la gravure sur micro. Ils ont été parmi les premiers a sortir des graveurs 4X, et les premier a les avoir fiabilisé.. Aujourd'hui, ils en sont au 8X4X24X, c'est a dire 8X en écriture (CD-R), 4X en re-ecriture (CD-RW), et 24X en lecture (CD-Rom). Bientot, ils vont passer en 8X8X24X ...toujours une longueur d'avance chez Yamaha.
  • Pros: rapport performance/qualité/prix imbattable
  • Cons: Rien du tout

  • Excerpt: Ce graveur est étonnament fiable à 8X. Même avec des CD-R sans marque. Vous pourrez arriver à graver des CD sans marque, non certifiés, à 8X sans avoir aucun soucis à la lecture de celui-ci après votre burn.
  • Pros: Fiabilité de la gravure
  • Cons: que dalle!
