DVD Recording Tests
- Writing Performance
The maximum supported speed for DVD+R is 16X (CAV), while for DVD-R 8X (Z-CLV), 4X CLV for DVD±RW and 2.4X for DVD+R DL media.
Nero Burning Rom reported speeds are shown below.
By using Nero CD-DVD Speed's "create disc" function, we are able to see the 8X, 12X and 16X recording strategies being used by the ED16DVDR recorder for the plus format as well as at 8X for the minus. For the following graphs, we used Mitsubishi Chemicals media. Click on the images below for the full CDSpeed screenshot.

- Supported media list/Burning Tests
We burned 4315MB of data on various DVD±R, DVD±RW media. We used the maximum allowed writing speed for each disc. With the current firmware, only certified 16X media can be burned at this speed, with the exception of Philips media which was allowed up to 12X. ***************We would like to see some 8X media reach this speed...
- Writing Time Results
- DVD+R media
The following Nero screenshots are taken after successfully burning with CMC, Traxdata and Mitsubishi media:
- DVD-R media
The 8X DVD-R writing times were similar for almost all the burned media.
- Comparison with other drives
As it can been seen from the graphs above, the Philips and Memorex drives posted similar performance, being the fastest in the plus format, while Freecom supports 16X for the minus format.
- DVD Overburning Test
Unfortunately, the drive does not support DVD overburning for both -R and +R media formats, giving the above error message.
- DVD+MRW Tests
This feature is also not supported.
