The DV-W516G achieves 16x performance with DVD+R, 8x performance with DVD-R, while the DV-W516D writes with 16x speed with both formats, +R and -R. Along with DVD+/-RW media, both drives also support DVD double layer media.
Once again TEAC comply with new specification standards, and with the DV-W516G and DV-W516D willsimultaneously launch two double layer DVD drives on the market at the end of August.
With a 16x write speed with DVD+R and DVD-R media and the capacity to save 8.5 GB on double layer media (which corresponds with approx. four hours of video in DVD quality), TEAC continue their success story in the DVDburner market, and with the top model DV-W516D, optimise the usage possibilities of the most demanding DVD users. With DVD+/-RW media, both of these DVD recorders, the DV-W516G and the DV-W516D, actually attain 4x burning performance.
With writing speed in the CD-R area, the DV-W516G is, however, faster than the expanded DV-W516D model and writes CD-R media at 48x. The CD-RW performance with both drives is 24x.
