De jongens en meisjes van Hot Hardware maken ons blij met een review van de Kenwood 72X TrueX 'Jet Fuel Injected Funny Car':
As we saw in the Sandra benchmarks, the Kenwood drive is like a Jet Fuel Injected Funny Car when compared to a 48X drive. Once again, the Kenwood 72X True X CD-ROM shows it lives up to its 10MB/sec. claimed performance. Also, the access times are a little more in line with what we expected from both drives, sub 100ms.
One final note, these numbers are nice too look at but the experience when using this drive for a large program install is nothing short of amazing. We install many instances of Microsoft Windows 98SE around here these days. Never in my life has an installation gone so quickly than when using this CD-ROM drive. It literally cut the load time easily in half, maybe even less. There is a very prominent speed gain you will notice when you fire this drive up for the first time. You'll be spoiled from that point forward.
