It will be helpful to have an understanding of how optical drives work. Anti-vibration system developed by ASUS. They all run Windows XP and share the important characteristic of making very little noise, typically 20 dBA 1 meter, so that they do not impinge on the analysis of the noise made by optical drives under test.

This will allow an apples-to-apples comparison of optical drives that operate at different speeds. Protected AudioCD Tests 7.
Recently, they submitted two new optical drives for scrutiny by SPCR. This is the main source of noise.
Samsung Releases New Flash Laptop. CD Recording Tests 8. A tracking mechanism moves the laser assembly so ssus the laser’s beam 5232az follow the spiral track from the innermost 52322as outward. Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically. Retail Package – Installation. Optimal Writing Speed Adjustment Technology based on the recording media requirements. Let’s move on to the ASUS drives. Noise and vibration are two major headaches users encounter when using a high-speed drive.
Submitted by Mike Chin on Sun, Their comments on uneven airflow and pressure makes one think of Frisbees They all run Windows XP and share the important characteristic of making very little noise, typically 20 dBA 1 meter, so that they do not impinge on the analysis of the noise made by optical drives under test.
Twitter’s Ad Sales Surge. Help choosing a PSU. In addition, ASUS has introduced the world’s first online firmware update tool inside the included burning software.
Time and resources at SPCR are precious and much better spent expanding our knowledge about the acoustic aspects of optical drives, which is hardly touched by any hardware reviewers. This is because measured dBA is only one aspect of noisiness, and human perception is the final arbiter. How CD Burners Worka detailed look by howstuffworks. There is no need to duplicate such efforts.
Buffer 5232zs Errors Prevention Technology. Anti-vibration system developed by ASUS.
Asus CRW-5232AS Manuals
RTX Ti review compilation thread Re: Optical drive performance testing is already done by many other hardware sites. The tracking system has to be able to move the laser at micron resolutions and to position it quickly for random access.
Removing the crs and opening the drive’s cover voids the drive’s warranty.
Leave this field blank. It will be helpful to have an understanding of how optical drives work. Crrw optical drive is used on the test bench, not mounted in a PC case. Colocation Server Hosting by Binary Environments.
The unit’s absolute sensitivity reaches below 0 dBA. This eliminate interactive variances that arise with vibrations, resonances, etc.
The noise emitted by an optical drive is most closely related to the speed at frw it is spinning the disc. They made their name with motherboards, and have now expanded into almost every aspect of PC components, optical drives among them. The question is whether any device can run quietly while spinning an intrinsically imbalanced 5″ diameter plastic disc at many thousands of RPM.
