ODD Benchmarks: Nero DiskSpeed DVD+R DL, Conclusions

Nero DiskSpeed 4: DVD+R DL Source: Ahead Software

Speed Boost and Enhanced Features

If you 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.

The Lite-on 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 right handy.

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.
