Dev Hardware Recomended Here's the lowdown: quick installation, fast burn of 4 GB of data, quiet running, and a great price. Bundled software includes Nero Burning Rom, the InCD application and neoDVD that enables you to convert your home movies and VHS tapes into DVD.
Whether you need to backup large amounts of information on your high capacity harddrive or transfer your home movies to DVD, the consumer need for DVD writers is quickly gaining momentum. AOpen has dropped a new drive on the market, which burns DVDs at 8x in both the +r and -r formats. But how does this drive measure up to every day use?
The AOpen 8x DVD Dual is one of AOpen’s latest forays into the arena of DVD burners. There is a large number of DVD burners now available on the market, from a number of vendors. The quality of these drives can vary from vendor to vendor. I intend to examine the quality of this drive and its ability to read and write the different available formats in this review.
Confused about the +r and –r formats I mentioned earlier? These are two of the burnable formats that DVD burners can execute. There are many formats available for burning DVDs, such as DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM. The format you use depends most on what you are trying to create. For example, DVD-RAM has the best recording options, but will not play in a household DVD player. This makes it better for the backup of data in large quantities (the average single layer DVD holds up to 4.7 GB of data). Both the +r and –r formats support usage in a household DVD player, to different extents. For example, the +r format is supported in up to 88% of DVD players on the market today, while the –r format is supported in up to 93% of the same. It has been my personal experience that –r has worked more effectively when burning video that is to be watched on a household DVD player.
