Acer CRW1208A CD-RW

3. RW/CloneCD Tests

Acer CRW1208 IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

For the RW tests we used Ricoh HS RW media written at 8x speed, since the Acer 1208 doesn't support 10x re-writing speed. As you can see the Acer performed very bad when reading HS-RW media:

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v2.8.4.3) and 3 original CDs (Rally Masters, Euro2000 and Vrally 2 Expert) in order to test the reading time for Acer CRW1208. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs since the reading speed varies among original and backup media:

- Results:

a) SafeDisc Results: Euro 2000 (Total: 257982 sectors - 10141 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

The Acer 1208 performed very badly in the SafeDisc protected CDs reading tests. The drive is very slow and in order to make the image of the Euro 2000 CD would take about 48minutes with both original and backup CD. The competition is much faster...

b) LaserLock Results: Rally Masters (Total: 321528 sectors - 6317 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

The Acer 1208 continues to have the worst reading performance among the 4 CDR-W drives especially with the backup CD. The performance with the original CD is satisfactory.

c) SecuROM Results: Vrally2 Expert - 343767 sectors

The Acer 1208 doesn't support reading "SubChannel Data from Audio/Data tracks"...
