If you have limited budget for your computer system and would like to save some by getting a regular DVD-ROM drive instead of a burner, then this roundup is for you. Five solutions from ASUS, Sony, Toshiba and Plextor under X-bit’s magnifying glass!
Nero Info Tool and DVDINFOPro
These two utilities can give us detailed info on the technical characteristics of the drives.
Some curious facts can be noticed here: only 254KB of cache memory is reported for the Sony DDU1615 instead of 512 kilobytes. The Sony DDU1622 doesn’t report its ability to work with DVD+R DL media and C2 errors. According to the information extracted from the Toshiba SD-M2012, this drive supports DVD-RW discs and C2 errors (the last thing is very doubtful as you will see in the tests below).
