After testing over 10 days the new YAMAHA CRW-F1E (IDE) CD-RW, we present the world's first review. We tried to cover most of the features in depth, and as you will find out, the review is longer than what you read so far...

PS. In addition, we introduce a new series of tests with the name "Error Correction Tests". We test the error correction of each drive, with the use of special test discs from Almedio and PHILIPS. The test discs include defects that stretch the drive's mechanism. Check the forth (4) page for more details ;-)
