- SCSI Mechanic v3.0: This was used to compare the Acer's CRW1208
I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (see charts). We used a pressed
CD containing PlexTools v1.08 for all tests.
- CD Speed 99 v0.80 was also used to check the drive performance with
pressed CDs. For that test we used PlexTools v1.08 original CD.
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0 results:
The Acer CRW1208 performed very good in most of our tests. The drive gave
back the best "Average Random I/O" test result super passing the competition.
In the "Average Sequential I/O" tests the Acer drive gave the 3rd
test result with 3579, far away from the competition of PleXWriter PX-W1210A
and Ricoh's 7125A. Last in the "Average Same Sector" I/O tests it
gave again the 3rd best value. Overall we could say that Acer 1208 is a good
performer but wants more improvement to reach the top.
- CD Speed 99 v0.80 results: (click here
to see the chart)
Using CD Speed 0.80, we can see that the Acer 1208 had the worst average reading
performance between 4 competitor drives. There is a performance gap between
the first (PleXWriter PX-W1210A) and the last (Acer 1208) of 0.61x, which confirms
our previous tests.
Do you remember that the Acer CRW1208 had the best "Average Random I/O"
test result? Here is the explanation: Acer 1208 simple kicks ass in seek times
with only 77ms when the Ricoh 7125A has 95ms value. Impressive performance from
Acer 1208 in this particular test.
