CD and DVD drive diagnostics software from Nero.

A review by Tina de Pierre

Nero DiscSpeed is a freeware drive benchmark program which can test and then display important information about the optical drive(s) installed on your Windows PC.

The main application interface is not difficult to understand and can test your DVD, CD or Blu-ray drive for several different values such s DAE quality, transfer rate, access time, CPU load, burst rate and snipup/spindown time.

Though Nero DiscSpeed is currently a part of the main Nero suite, it is also available as a standalone application which can provide you with interesting and useful details.

Overall, Nero DiscSpeed provides you with importat information about your DVD/CD/Blu-ray burner which can be used to optimize burning software.
