Yamaha CDRW F1 is out and you can buy them at BestBuy Now!

Recommended Posts

I love this drive, and all I can say about the Disc@2 is WOW, what a great feature to have.

I love this drive, I have teamed it up with my Yamaha 3200 drive.

There is a heaven!

You can buy the new F1 at BestBuy.

I wonder just how much cd-r it would take to burn your porn if you burned each frame as a disc T@2 instead of just burning the mpg FILES on the disc like was intended in the first place!

:)

FWIW, Disc T@2 is so cool that I plan to NEVER use it!

FWIW, I bought a CRW-F1, and it is missing stuff my $69 Sony 40x12x48 has...

It is very amusing to me that the drive is marketing to be the best burner, with best burn quality, but you CANNOT do a cd quality check with the drive to attempt to verify the marketing hype!

Sorry, I own one, and the CRW-F1 is an over-priced, over-hyped burner...

At least that is my initial reaction to this drive...

It DOES do perfect quality burns though!

Then again, so does my Sony, for $110 less!

THe Yamaha does have more features, but that $179 price tag cannot last long...

CDRInfo has confirmed the F1's claims of "better" writing in comparison to other 40x and greater burners, using some pretty high-end equipment that most of us will never touch. :o

Very stange! You know... My CRW-F1 does carry out a cd media quality check!!! Hmmm... It even states blatently when I put myc heap rubbish media in!!!! " Hey whats this crap media! You cheap b*st*rd go spend some bucks ont he decent stuff!!! Buringat 4x not 8x now!!!!"

So your must be knackered mate! Or your spouting bull <sniff> <sniff>...

;)

Don't stress just taking the Michael! ;)

But somethign wierd about this drive is it really doesn't like my cheap media! It's BUSH media... And teh drive actually disappears from XP after reading one!!! (I hit eject put any otehr disc in... try to access it beore the drive has doen teh initial TOC read... POW! XP moans I've unplugged it!)

If I pull the power plug ont eh drive... Put it back in.. XP automatically redetects the drive fine again!

never does it with any other media!!! Just these junk bush! Thank GOD I only have 3 of the worthless things left!!!

;)

Cheerios chaps!

The Yamaha CRW-F1 cannot do a C2 error check, which is what I was referring to...

Like I said, I find it very odd that a _THE_ drive to get does not support testing the media for the quality of the burn the drive performed...

So, what is your definition of a media quality check?

Hmmm.... C2 error check eh? Nope! I have no idea what your on about!

:oops:

I bow to your superior knowledge......

I was on about the Nero media quality check that it's little utils can do.....

Either way... I like it! It makes my girlfriends stone age cd-player play music cd's burned by it!!! (non CD-R compatible player as far as I'm aware!!!!! My last burner couldn't do that!)

So I am more than happy about it! (Well appart from having to transfer all the data off of my BUSH discs onto decent media!!!)

But thats my own fault for buying cheap blanks!

I must admit that this feature is even less useful than I originally thought. The text is close to invisible.

I realise I could change my CDR media to something that T@2'd better, but I think I'll pass...

If anybody wants a CRW-F1 newegg has both the white and black in stock. $145 shipped for the OEM, $153 for the retail. Black costs a few bucks more. Those are the best prices I've seen on it so far.

Still a bit more expensive than in Japan. Most computer drives and boards are cheapest in the US, so the Yamaha CRW-F1 case is one exception.

$120 is the right US retail price in my opinion. In Seoul, it's about $220 but then only the extreme few buy Yamaha drives here.
