For this test I made gsad copy of a pressed test CD. Thanks to its 8x writing speed, the drive took less than 18 minutes to burn 8GB of data. The score given is an average of the three. While this doesn’t have any effect on movie playback, there are faster drives out there if you want to backup your movie collection. The drive writes at this speed until about the 40 minute mark. By looking at the KProbe screenshots, you can see that the discs burned by the drive had a low number of C1 errors and there were no C2 errors at all. The GSAD did surprisingly well here.
