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 MSI X48 is a tad faster than the LG GSA-4082B when it comes to reading DVD-ROMs (again 16X vs the 12X for the LG drive). Performance is still very good, and you will have no problems watching movies or installing data from a DVD.

Nero's CD Speed burn tests are done twice, once with a DVD-RAM rated to 1x-3x burn speed, and a DVD+RW rated to 2.4-4x. Each disc was test with files of about 4.7GB 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 DVD-RAM, DVD-/+R or DVD-/+RW media and run the appropriate tests.

When it comes to burning DVD media, it's nice to see that the LG GSA-4082B is up to snuff. Unfortunately we were not able to find any 8x DVD-/+R or 4x DVD-RW media in our area to test with. Pickings are still a bit slim.
