On the whole, you can see all information about the characteristics and qualities of the drives in the screenshots and the table. Still, there are certain nuances to be singled out. Nero Info Tool says that Mitsumi DW-7801TE and NEC ND-1100A can burn DVDs of both competing formats, although the manufacturers don’t mention it. The same program is wrong in determining speed characteristics for Sony DW-U12A. The Pioneer DVR-A05 drive identifies itself as DVR-105.

All the drives are made with RPC II regional protection system, meaning that the owner of the device can change the zone five times. After that, the last zone becomes permanently assigned to the drive. All the drives support Accurate Stream function. As for C2 Errors recognition, Nero Info Tool and EAC came to a disagreement. The latter utility says all Pioneer models and TEAC DV-W50E cannot react to such errors. Moreover, EAC finds the caching mode in the Pioneer drives, in TEAC DV-W50E and RICOH RW5125A. It may tell negatively on precision of audio track extraction.
