Acer sets a high standard. With the new Acer DVP 1648A, we are introducing one of the world's fastest DVD-ROM drives, offering data transfer rates of up to 16X (DVD-ROM) and 48X (CD-ROM). The DVP 1648A allows you to watch DVD titles on your computer, providing enjoy, information and entertainment to the highest quality available. It is extremely fast: the data transfer rate - for the DVD-ROM up to 21,600 KB/sec (16X) and for the CD-ROM up to 7,200 KB/sec (48X) - coupled to the very fast access time (85 msec typical for both DVD-ROM and CD-ROM) and the search time of just 75 msec, makes it quite simply one of the fastest DVD-ROM drives on the market today.
