After much use and trialing of the Sony DRU510A drive, I am very impressed with its ability to burn multi-format DVD's. Its a fast all round drive and brings together some of the best features and software packages to keep most people happy.
The ability to write at 4x on DVD-/+R/RW, comprehensive software packages, excellent all round performance in burning compilations and reading DVDs at 12x.
For the money this drive costs you would expect to have a few more things on the front panel, volume control and headphone jack. The documentation is very loosely put together.
This drive doesn't look ugly from the front, but I really miss those front controls, it just seems bare naked.
As we don't have another DVD Burner to compare the Sony DRU 510A to we cant make a big comparison. But reading reviews from other sources gave us the impression that this drive is indeed a very fast monster. If your after a good all round DVD-Burner and don't want to be stuck with a single format DVD-Burner which may become obsolete when the standard is finally released then this drive is definitely a good investment.
