Excerpt: I have owned cd writers since the very first one that was released on the market, many years ago. I bought a Phillips 2X write, 2X read...Since then I have bought numerous cdr's and cdrw's, ranging from the cheap and nasty to the most expensive.
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...
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.
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...
Pros: Easy to install, simple operation, looks the part too
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,...
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.
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).
