Artec VPP-8D24Q - Page 1

 

Ultima is a company with a monthly output of approximately 3.5 million optical storage devices. The company has a wide range of product lines including CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, Combo, External Combo, External CD-RW, DVD Dual and DVD recorders for home use, as well as home theatre sets.

The latest internal DVD recorder is the VPP-8D24Q. According to the manufacturer, this burner supports dual format recording, 8x for DVD+R and 4x for DVD-R. The recording speeds for rewritable media is 4x and 2x for DVD+RW and DVD-RW respectively. Below are summarized the features and the specifications for the drive.

- Features

- Specifications

The drive uses 8MB buffer memory. RAW DAO 96 writing (CD) is supported.

The Artec drive uses the RPC-2 Region Control, allowing a user to change the drive's region at most 4 times. For our tests, we set the region code to 2 (Europe).

- Retail package

The retail package includes a quick installation guide, IDE and analog audio cables and mounting screws.

Packaged software includes two CD-ROM discs with Sonic RecordNow(v.6.7.0), Sonic DLA(v.4.60) and InterVideo WinCinema along with multilingual guides.

 

- The drive

On the rear panel there are the analogue and digital audio outputs (SPDIF), the IDE connector and the power input.

Removing the screws and opening the drive's cover voids the drive's warranty. For reference reasons, we post the following pictures.

- Installation

The Artec drive was connected to our test PC and was identified as "DVD DUAL 8X4X12" under WinXP, which is the same as BenQ's DW822A recorder. All tests were performed with firmware revision ATC1.

The following pages include test results for the Artec drive in comparison with two other dual 8x/4x DVD burners, the Teac DV-W58G and the Optorite DD0401.
