Out of a total of eight DVD burners tested, the Hitachi LG GP96YB70 narrowly prevailed over the competition from Verbatim (external slimline writer) and Cocopa (external CD / DVD drive). In the test, the technology was able to play and write all common CDs and DVDs, and the read and write speed was convincing across the board. For a CD with 640 megabytes of data, the GP96YB70 only needed 4:19 minutes (read) and 4:58 minutes (write) in the test, with a DVD with 4.3 gigabytes it was 9:43 minutes (read) and 10:57 Minutes (write). That’s great! Because the cheap competitors sometimes took significantly more time. External DVD drives are rarely quiet, but the Hitachi-LG was still one of the models with a moderate volume.
