MSI X48 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

MSI X48 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive - PCSTATS
Abstract: Taking into consideration the popularity of small formfactor PC's, 'combo drives' are the perfect match for space lacking cases such as those tiny toaster-sized PCs.

Nero's CD Speed burn tests are done twice, once with a CDR rated to 1x-52x burn speed, and a CD-RW rated to 4x-32x. Each disk was test with files of about 640MB in size. This test is done by simply placing blank recording media into the burner and running CD Speed the software will detect if it is CD-R or CD-R/W media and run the appropriate tests.

We ran into an odd problem when testing the MSI X48 with CD media, the maximum we could get the burner to burn CD-R's was 24x despite the media being 48x compatible. CD-RW burning was also restricted to 4x no matter what we did!?

CD Speed can also read DVD-ROM discs showing you maximum transfer speeds, access times and CPU utilization. The DVD data disc has about 3.78GB of data on it and is a retail DVD-ROM disc, not burned on a DVD-/+R disc.

Unfortunately we do not have any drives at this moment to compare the MSI X48 against to in the DVD-ROM tests. It looks like the MSI X48 does fairly well here, the access times are not very high nor is CPU utilization.
