From a review at TheTechZone: "Here we have it! The fastest DVD drive on planet Earth! The AOpen DVD1640 Pro is a 16x
DVD/40x CD drive! Has DVD finally supplanted CD-ROM? With a drive like this one, I think so! The
AOpen DVD1640 Pro, is currently one of the fastest PC-DVD drive you can buy for a personal
computer. With 16x DVD , and 40x CD read speeds, we may finally have a DVD drive that's fast
enough (especially on the CD side) to finally supplant CD-ROM."
