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.

The Aopen DRW8800 burns CD-R/RW media at 16X, so it is good to see that is reaches its top speed easily. In fact on both CD-R and CD-RW tests, the drive burns slightly faster than its rated spec.

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.

The average speed for the AOpen DRW8800 is where we expect it, but access times are just a tad on the high side. CPU utilization is good, and the drive is quick to load discs.
