I thought this was a bit interesting for a couple of reasons. It actually rated slower than a "standard" 8x drive according to Sandra 2k, considering the speed of an 8x it isn't all that bad. Not to mention the CD I used for testing had a couple of hefty zip files, and some smaller text only types which could have thrown things off. As for the "feel" of the speed, it isn't meant for a screaming fast reader and I didn't take it as such. A drive, right out the box, performing close to specs with no tweaks or hacks. That's right, no I did not OC it, yet..... Well, not much else to say bout this sweet item, other than if speed is not a major concern, and portability and coolness factors outweigh the need to burn as fast as humanly possible, this is definitely on my list of got
to have one's. With all that said, check out QPS. They have some other optical solutions sure to please as much as this one.
