Waitec Action 16 Recorder - Page 2
Transfer Rate Reading Tests
- CD Format
The maximum reading speed supported by the Action 16 is 48X for CD-R media
and 24X for CD-RW media. Below are the transfer rate graphs, where we compare
against the other two drives:
In the first two tests with Pressed and CDR media, the reviewed drive gives
satisfying results, with faster reading speeds than the other two drives.Using
CDRW media, the Philips drive was the fastest with the Waitec and Pioneer battling
over second place but with no significant speed differences.
- DVD Format
Using Single Layer media, the Action 16 narrowly beat the other two drives
managing to have the fastest readings, but without any surprises with regard
the other two graphs with Dual Layer media, the PTP (Parallel Track Path) and
the OTP (Opposite Track Path), the battle between the three drives was easily
won by the Pioneer DVR-108.
Using DVD-R/+R media, the Pioneer DVR-108 was fastest, while the other two
drives had very similar speeds. Using RW media, the difference in reading
speeds among all drives is negligible.
Finally, in the DVD ripping test using a pressed DL movie, the Action 16 was
first, with the fastest transfer rate and hence faster DVD ripping...
