2. Transfer Rate Reading Tests

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 its performance 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 to speed. As for 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...
