- CD-R Format
The drive supports 8X, 16X, 24X, 32X, 40X and 48X (CAV) writing speeds.
The drive began the task at 21.92X and finished it at 49.41X reporting an average speed of 37.38X, confirming the manufacturer's specifications for 48X CD recording. Click on the image below for details.
- CD-R Recording Times
For the burning tests, we created an 80min data compilation through Nero Burning Rom and recorded the data on a 700MB disc. The ED16DVDR finished the task in 3:10 minutes when writing at 48X. The Freecom and Memorex drives, which both support 48X, were faster with times of 2:59min and 2:47min respectively.
The writing performance was stable, no matter what the inserted media brand, as our tests showed. Below is a chart listing the corresponding recording times for various media.

- CD-RW Format
The ED16DVDR supports 16X CLV, 24X P-CAV rewriting speeds with Ultra Speed Rewritable Media (US-RW). Below you can see the Nero CD-DVD Speed writing simulation test with blank 24x US-RW media from Mitsubishi Chemicals. The test started at 16.02X and finished at 24.06X having an average writing speed of 22.51X
We also used Nero Burning Rom in order to burn a 24X US-RW data disc from Mitsubishi Chemicals. The data compilation we burned had a size of 651 MB and the duration of the recording process was 4:04 minutes.
