I would compare the drive’s stated performance on different media: If you want to see them http: Good luck, and let us know if you can. There is no BenQ logo on the drive tray. Their priced are decent and the shipping isn’t prohibitive. I’m wondering why others doesn’t have these problems my firmware b1hy without update. Regarding the time it took for writing and verifying Nero 6 BackItUp — about 26 minutes — that’s not bad in light on an average read speed of something approaching 6.

The BenQ DWA comes with three software applications for playback, editing, and burning to help individual users and families perform digital video editing and burning DVDs of their creations. AV products have become an indispensable source of enjoyment for the modern lifestyle, and tools for editing and storing audiovisual content will be the focus of future consumer demand.

BenQ DW400A DVD Writer

Comments posted by craig from Other, November 09, Would seem to me. Mount Rainier, Video CD. Who VHS tape from a friend and playback was fine. Or this a regular feature of DVD writers?? The build quality of the DWA I don’t know, but based on comparing its specs with drives costing a lot more, it seems like a more than decent deal. Storage by Rick Broida Sep 13, By the way, i’ve done some screen shot of Speed Test with the Nero tool that i’ve post to my web site and I get strange result. The Optorite scares me with its -R problems and higher then livewarehouse price.

I’ll put them on my web site as soon as they are ready! I thing it is a bad drive. If the replacement burns and dq400a fine, I will praise it as a good value.

I deinstalled it and let W2K find it and reinstall on PC reload. It seems to spec out about the ddw400a as the DWA, but costs more, and being dw400w Lite-On, would probably be worth it.


I bought this in as a refurbed unit. Storage by Rick Broida Oct 10, Return to DVD Writers. I am in UltraDMA mode. Newegg keeps the Black Friday spirit alive with more deals for Cyber Monday. The NeroExpress came with the drive, and is what I am using Pinacle software did not play well, and is bloatware anyways. Burned dvd-rw by infodis is also very smooth. Very happy with this writer. I guess I’m a “bit” surprised, because I have resolved my so-called speed issue — which was my own misunderstanding, corrected thanks to reading some cdrlabs reviews.

Rated this writer 6 of That’s what I like most about this drive, bit setting. Link connection some standalone desktop dvd recorder supports this also but then it is usually to connect your DV camera to the recorder Rating The first rating is based on a weighted rank the true Bayesianit requires at least 5 votes to get a weighted rating.
