3D Alpha heeft een kleine review in elkaar gezet van de Creative Blaster 6x4x24x cd-rewriter. Hier heb je wat over de performance, de rest vind je hier.
Bear in mind that there are faster drives than this (8x or 1,200kb/sec), but also bear in mind that not everyone buys a CD-R/CD-RW drive that writes faster than 4x. Though let me say one thing before I tell you the performance notes: 6x is simply sweet, and what's better: It's being brought to you by a company who knows what the hell they're doing. Creative has been making dependable computer equipment for some time now, and this drive isn't any exception for performance or stability.
How to test? Well, after installation Nero burning ROM, I took out a few of my CDs that I've been needing to get archive copies of. These CDs were Windows NT WorkStation 4.0, Windows NT Server 4.0, SoulEdge Khan Super Session Album, and StarCraft Broodwar. The results include approximated times by using the principle that approximate times can be figured by using this formula, (CD is full in this example.): 650mb = 665600kb / 900kb/sec = 739 seconds = 12 minutes and 19 seconds.
