Sony DVD Dual RW Drive DRU-720A optical disc drive Internal

The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
DVD Dual RW Drive DRU-720A
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

Even though this drive technically supports 48X CD burning, Sony throttles it to 40X straight out of the box, citing reliability and safety concerns when the disc spins at very high speeds. Having experienced high-speed disc-shattering firsthand in the...

The drive supports both DVD+R and DVD-R discs with two layers. In a seeming attempt to muddy the waters, the DVD+RW Alliance now officially calls its two-layer disc burning technology "double layer." So youll see that referred to in the future as DV...
Good Speedy single layer burning; relatively inexpensive...
Bad Slightly slower in single layer DVD burning than the older DRU-720A; costs a little more, too.
Bottom line The DRU-720A can be found at an economical price, and does burn DVD+R DL at 4x speeds. Its also a little faster on single layer media than the new drive...
