De mensen van JDAlpha hebben een review online gekicked van de Kenwood TrueX 72X CD-ROM speler. Zoals bekend werkt deze speler met meerdere lasers tegelijk (zeven in totaal), en moet daardoor dan ook echt de 72X snelheid behalen. Volgens de testen van JDAlpha voldoet de Kenwood aan de verwachtingen, alleen de vraag is of het nog wel verstandig is om deze (dure) CD-ROM speler te kopen.
Well, is this CD-ROM, created by Kenwood with it's True X techonology, fast? We don't think so, we know so. Spinning at 72X, and when calculated, we were able to rate it at delivering an astounding 7.1MB/sec transfer rate when copying the 573MB worth of Quake 3 files, this CD-ROM is a very high performer.
But this day in age, we all know we need something that does more than read CD's at blazing speeds. A year or so ago, I would have recommended that you buy a CD-ROM with the True X techonology, whether it be 42x, 52x or any speed, but now I would not.
With this much money being spent on a CD-ROM drive, get yourself a DVD-ROM or a CD-RW Drive. I mean, come on people, the fastest required CD-ROM for almost every game is no larger than 8x MAX, what are you going to do with 72X?!?
Or you could just do what I did and get a True 72x and a CD Writer. What do you think Dan's been thinking about doing now that he already has a True X Drive? He's not going to get rid of it.
