Atomic Geek heeft een review rond de Yamaha 8424S SCSI Rewriter in elkaar geknutseld. Een kieskeurig apparaat dat ondanks goede specs (4Meg buffer, 8X write, 4X rewrite en 24X read) in praktijk erg gevoelig bleek voor de kwaliteit van het gebruikte type recordable:
All in all, this burner has been a very emotional up and down roller coaster ride for me. The hardware installation went fine, but the software installation concerns me. Adaptec Easy CD Creator is the one of the only software programs that can support the 8424S. This will change though in the next couple of months, but for now it's the ONLY one. The 8X burning is very sketchy. You need the buy 8X rated CDRs, and you have to burn from the hard drive in order to be successful. You cannot use a cdrom reader (even my Plextor 32 which is also SCSI and is considered to be one of the best readers out there, failed this test) to burn on the fly. No one tells you all of this though. I had to find it out the hard way.
