Acer CRW1208A CD-RW

2. Data Tests

Data Tests

Test Method:
- 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.
