CDRInfo maakt ons blij met een review van de Sanyo CRD-BP900P, een 12x4x32 IDE CD-ReWriter met Burn-Proof technology wat ervoor zorgt dat je CD niet naar het CD-kerkhof hoeft als de writer er even geen data op kan wegschrijven. De drive bleek verder goed te presteren alhoewel je beter even kan wachten met kopen aangezien binnenkort de (Plextor) 12x10x32 versies al komen.
Sanyo has moved its BURN-Proof technology to the IDE platform and improved their drive's mechanism since some minor problems found on the Sanyo CRD-BP2 model are not present. Most users find the SCSI solutions more reliable than the IDE ones, because they're worried about high CPU usage and possibly buffer underrun problems. Sanyo solution seems the antidote to their fears and can really make your burning life smoother.
Back to the drive's capabilities, no big surprises here since the drive performed very good to all the tests we did. The drive seems to be improved in the DAE ripping speeds since it can now rips wavs with 12x reading speed whereas Sanyo CRD-BP2 (SCSI model) had some problem (which still don't have been fixed even with latest firmware version v2.21.)
[...] Finally ,I would like to comment that Sanyo CRD-BP900P may not have many chances to survive in market since Sanyo next models (CRD-BP3 and CRD-BP1300P) supports HS RW recording speeds (4-10x) and Plextor's HS RW recording (PleXWriter PX-W1210A) solution will start selling possibly end of this month... I think the drive should have at least been released one month ago. Who will buy the 12/4/32 IDE solution since he could get the new 12/10/32 IDE model in few weeks?
