The drive came in the OEM package, i.e. only the drive itself.
CR-485CTE is one of the first drives we received with the write speed over 16x.
But more or less acceptable results reminding 20x can be obtained with a blank,
unformatted CD-RW disc. The drive rewrites discs at 12x. Such record method is
called SSWPAT (Super Speed Write).
The new Mitsumi's solution
supports the Aegis Write technology. Like the SafeBurn from Yamaha, the
Aegis Write can control and optimize laser power, speed and quality of recording.
In spite of its up-to-date technologies the CR-485CTE is very demanding as
far as quality of media is concerned. When we inserted a low-quality disc and
set the speed at 40x we found out that sometimes the recorder was not able to
select a correct write speed or reduce it during recording.
We didn't have such a problem with high quality CD-Rs from TDK, Sony, Imation,
Philips and others.

The Mitsumi's drive is based on the OAK Technology's chipset OTI-9797:
Like the CR-4809TE, the OEM version will have just 2MB buffer memory,
while the Retail one will come with a 16MB buffer.
The drive works noiselessly
even at high speeds.
The appearance is different fro the previous models
- it became less sophisticated. However, there is one LED working in several modes.
can be installed both in vertical and horizontal positions. Back
