Quote from the review at CDR-Info:
“After a lot of waiting (due to some problems in the post), our Sony drive finally arrived thanks to the official European distributor. Eagerly, like mad scientists, we set forth, putting the unit through its paces in our labs, and what follows is our appraisal of a drive from which we expect a lot.
The recorder is capable burning at speeds of 8x for DVD+R media, 4x for DVD+RW, 4x for DVD-R and 2x for DVD-RW. The maximum allowed recording speeds for CD media are 40x for CD-R and 24x for CD-RW. “
