After sometime, we post two new hardware reviews. We have delayed both reviews since we have added a new series of tests that examine ,in depth, the reading error correction of the drives using special CD-R and pressed test discs. The new tests are very interesting and will be used in all future reviews...
: After having tested the internal IDE drive (CRW-F1E), we were very excited to see the CRW-F1DX arrived in our labs. The new model from the CRW-F1 series is actual the external version of its twin brother CRW-F1E (already tested) and comes with an attractive look and two different connection interface. We compare both Yamaha drives to see their performance differences, due to different firmware revision.
WAITEC FRISBY II
: This is ,currently, the fastest external portable recorder since it supports 40X writing, 12X re-writing and 40X reading. We compare WAITEC FRISBY II with three internal 40X recorders from LG, Plextor and Samsung. The results might surprise you!
