Unless otherwise mentioned, all write tests are run with Verbatim media, rated at the drive's maximum speed. Find out more about how we test optical drives.

HP backs the dvd630e with an industry-standard one-year warranty and provides 24/7 toll-free phone support to augment the very competent printed documentation. The company's Web site offers a decent amount of information, though when we checked, most of the FAQs were software related, and we couldn't find a downloadable manual. E-mail support is provided, and you can also subscribe to an e-mail list to alert you to firmware and driver updates.
