Asus CRW-4012A in the test: 40/12/48 burners at a fair price
The CAV method is used to read a CD, as is the case with Asus and its competitors. Here, the Asus product does not quite keep what it promises, because the full 48x reading speed is only achieved at the end of an 80 minute CD. However, compared to the competing products, the burner is clearly ahead in terms of reading speed at start, end and on average.
When reading a normal 70 minute audio CD, nothing has really changed compared to the previous one, because the start, end and average speeds are 19X , 40X and 31X identical.
