Nero DiskSpeed 4 tests a DVD+R DL rated to 12x. The program emulates a
burn that would fill the disc with 8.5GB of data. This test is done by
simply placing blank recording media into the burner and running the

The iHAS524 is right on average when it
comes to DVD media.
Speed Boost and Enhanced Features
have an old IDE optical drive kicking around inside your PC system, it's time
for an upgrade. Moving to an optical burner like the Lite-on iHAS524 means that
you won't be left out in the cold when it's time to upgrade to a new PC, but
even better it will also mean better performance from your optical media.
iHAS524 is a very fast
DVD and CD rewriter and frequently topped the PCSTATS benchmark charts.
It also stayed nicely quiet even when it was spinning up, a noise that has
been the bane of silent PC aficionados the world over. Being compatible with
DVD-RWs, DVD +/-R, DVD +/-R DL, DVD-RAM and CD-R/CD-RW discs makes the iHAS524
capable of reading all of the most popular optical storage formats.
On top of that it offers the neat LabelTag technology which makes labeling
regular DVD-R and CD-R media a breeze. I can think of several uses for
this, say for labeling disks that are going off the printers, for promotional
press kits, or recording serial numbers on backed up software... it's just down
With a price of just $40 CDN ($40 US, £20 GBP), it's easy to pen the LiteON iHAS524 onto
the 'must upgrade' list. The added flexibility it offers with LabelTag and
the quick read/write times are just icing on the cake.
