Gamers Depot heeft een review van de Kenwood 72X CD-ROM drive neer gestuiterd. De extreem hoge 72-voudige leessnelheid dankt deze drive aan de TrueX technologie van Zen Research, waarmee 7 datastreams tegelijkertijd gelezen kunnen worden:
Like it's predecessors before it, the Kenwood 72x drive performed with results that were very close to it's actual rating. One look at the benchmarks and you'll see that it killed both of the other drives we tested.
In all actuality, unless you absolutely need the low CPU overhead of SCSI, there is not a faster drive around period. One thing I have a hard time understanding is why other companies haven't started using the Zen technology, as it's obvious that it yields superior results.
