Does anyone have any info when this drive will be available in US/Canada? I contacted ASUS USA, but they didn't reply yet...

Hrm... good point! My source may have been referring to 12x and 16x only then for DVD-R... but I'll have to double check.

i think benq is fastest !!! using P-cav write strategy .

TEST Drive = BENQ DW1600
Disc = SMARTBUY 8x DVD+R


FW: B5G9
SUPPORT 12x !!!










Disc Quality [Liteon 832s ] LOW PI/PO :lol: (Burn 12x) Grade "A"



READ [BENQ DW1600A] :)

Yes BenQ DW1600A would be faster than A08 since A08 uses Z-CLV writing strategy, hopefully soon we will prepare the review, even we are waiting for a new firmware

After reading the full review I was happy that I bought the Benq1600. I hope that the outcome doesn't stand for all NEC-chipset based 16x burners cause I find it rather dissapointing.
I hope other brands using the NEC-chipset can do a better job configuring the drive/firmware.

For sure the ASUS drive needs improvement...For using it as a 12X Z-CLV writer and for 4X DL burn is ok...

First thing that struck me is they will allow Double Layer 2.4x media to be "oversped" to 4x but not standard 4x media to 8x.
Also it's 12x record times are quite slow, hardly any improvement on the 8x speeds and subpar quality for Pioneer standards.
Impressive with that Phillips 16x burn though.
