The fastest RW burner in the market today is designed and manufactured by LITE-ON IT Corp. The drive (LITE-ON P/N: LTR-40125S) provides 40X maximum CD-R recording speed (Zone-CLV ); 12X maximum CD-RW recording speed (CLV); and an industry leading 48X CD-ROM reading speed.
LTR-40125S is using Zone-CLV technology when recording CD-R media, which starts at 20X from the beginning, it increases speed in the following fashion: 24X after 8 minutes, 32X after 28 minutes, then 40X after 53 minutes. LTR-40125Sµ¦s 12X-max RW recording speed supports most normal to high quality 10X RW media available in the market today.
LTR-40125S incorporates Buffer-Under-Run protection utility that is must-have among high speed CD burners, and the drive is shipped with Buffer-Under-Run protection function always enabled that could provide automatic writing strategy and running OPC.
LTR-40125S also includes the "redefined" SMART-BURN (Smart Monitoring & Adapting Recording Technology for BURNing) feature with this fastest burner. The new SMART-BURN would automatically check media quality and set limit to burning speed that is best suited for that media to ensure successful writing sessions. (Users will have an option to deactivate this feature if they choose to force the drive to record at maximum speed regardless of media quality. Users will have to take such action at their own risk.)
LTR-40125S continues to feature LITE-ON's SMART-X (Smart Monitoring and Adjusting Read-speed Technology for eXtraction) function that provides the fastest (48Xmax) and smart DAE speed among current RW drives during copying or playback. The VAS (Vibration Absorber System) is used to reduce the vibration and noise to minimum during normal operation. LTR-40125S supports Mt.Rainier standard and uses flash ROM for convenient in the field upgrades.
