If your shooting for silent computing then you've certainly noticed that no matter how silent your fans or your more extreme cooling solution seem to be you still have to put up with the constantly audible whirring noises made by your various drives. Today we're going to take a look at Asus's attempt to help you quiet down at least one of those drives, your CD-RW. So did they succeed in finding a silent solution, or will earplugs still be necessary to those with finer hearing palettes.
Asus, as a company, needs little to no introduction really, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, especially the last few 6 months or so. Asus has become one of the industry's leading names when it comes to motherboards, and video cards to a lesser extent. However, Asus has been trying to expand it’s horizons to include pretty much every facet of technology today. They now have laptops, PDAs, barebones computer systems, switches/routers/wireless solutions, servers, and optical storage devices, as seen in today’s review.
We here at Dev Hardware were fortunate enough to get our hands a CD-RW drive that recently hit the market. I am referring to the Asus CRW-5232AS. Here’s a look at the specifications of the Asus CRW-5232AS straight from the company’s website.
