Het volk bij GA-Source heeft een review van de Creative CD-RW 4224 CD-Rewriter op het net gezet. De normale lees snelheid van het apparaat is 3,6Mb/sec (24x), recorden gaat op 4x speed en rewriten op double speed. GA-Source is positief over de performance:
Beyond my initial surprise at the quality of the CD mastering software, I was really surprised at the performance of the drive itself. I ran some of the cheapest crappiest blank CDs I could find through the Blaster CD-RW, and I got 0 coasters. Out of using about the same number of the same brand blanks in my normal CDR drive (a Panasonic/Matsushita SCSI 7502), I would have expected at least 1 or two coasters. Especially with blank Maxell or JVC media, I generally tended to get as bad as 1/2 of my total burns as coasters. With the Blaster, none at all. With more premium media, as I have generally had to use, I also experienced no headaches.
