Gamers Depot heeft een kleine review online geplant van de Hewlett Packard 8210e externe cd-rewriter met USB aansluiting. De drive bakt CD's op 4 speed en leest ze op maximaal 6 speed. Hieronder een plak uit de review:
One of the most impressive features of this unit, isn't the drive itself, but more the included software bundle. For those of you seeking a great "out of box" experience, you're in for a treat. Once you get the drive installed properly, you can then get to cranking out your own recordings using the powerful Adaptec Direct CD, and Easy CD-Creator.
HP has also included their "Fast Format" software which lets you start using the included blank CDR-W right away. What it does is it starts formatting the CDR-W in the background, and lets you start recording to it while it does this. This is a great feature since it takes around 45min to format one of these bad boys.
During our tests, we didn't make a single "coaster", which simply means we didn't encounter any failed "burn" sessions, even while burning from a source across the LAN. After using this drive awhile, I could really start to understand it's great potential as a solid drive to transfer between machines. For example, if you'd like to go and make "off-site backup copies" of stuff on your work machine, the 8210e would prove to be an excellent choice.
Klein minpuntje: de drive werkt alleen onder Windows 98...
