The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
DRW-2014L1T Black
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

Bad The faceplate colors seem to be off, e.g. black = dark blue,"• Drive has a lot of slow starts, e.g. slow spinup times,"• On several different disk formats, disk speeds are slower than our older drive...
Bottom line This ASUS drive surprised us with its composure in all of the tests we put it through and it showed that it is ready for prime time. Even though it was compared to a BenQ drive that is almost two years old, its performance in the access time tests was...

Bad High media requirements when writing at 20x, Questionable quality with some DVD±R DL media, Slower than other drives when writing to DVD±R DL and DVDRAM media, Had a hard time reaching its rated speeds when reading pressed CDs, Reads CDR media at only 40x...
Bottom line Like the DRW-1814BLT before it, the DRW-2014L1T has had its share of growing pains. Early reviews indicated that it suffered from many of the same performance issues as its predecessor. Instead of publishing our own less than flattering review, we put...

With DVD writers in this day and age tending to sport a full hand both compatibility and speed-wise these days, its really rather hard to fault most drives of this ilk in all honesty. Take a look at the pricing of such devices, and the room for crit...

While doing research for this review, we realized that we had to go back nearly three years - an eternity in the PC industry - to find the last HotHardware article on optical drives. For a comparative look at technologies, back then we were using...
Bottom line Admittedly, the Plextor PX-810SA would seem to be at a disadvantage when going head-to-head with the other drives, as both DVD and CD writing speeds are rated slightly lower than the newer Asus and Lite-On Models. As it turns out, the PX-810SA not o...

ASUS presents this high-speed DVD burner that does not have a solution for Blu Ray media reading, but supports the Lightscribe feature (of which you can read a small presentation somewhere amongst the pages of the present review). It also supports DV...
Bottom line The ASUS DRW-2014L1T drive had left us with a few doubts after completing the tests with the original firmware Ver1.00 installed. However, with the firmware Ver1.02, Asus engineers managed to correct the majority of the remarks we reported in the fir...

ASUS has done a remarkable job with this drive and if it can keep the price in check with the likes of Plextor, NEC, LG and other competitors, then it should have no problems selling these things like hot-cakes. Using our Pricegrabber search engine, w...

This next item up for review is something of a "first" for us here at VH: the Asus DRW-2014L1T. ASUS introduced this drive as an internal DVD rewriter with LightScribe direct disc labeling technology. Along with providing 20x DVD±R writing and 8...
Bottom line As far as DVD optical drives go, the is right on par with a lot of the other drives in its class. The LightScribe is a bonus for those who like to label their discs. Most drive noise is created when the optical disc starts to wobble and vibrate...
