Acer CRW2010A CD-RW

3. RW/CloneCD Tests

Acer CRW2010A IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.83 Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The Acer 2010 gave the lowest average reading test result (24.39x) among the 4 tested drives, since its top speed reaches only 32x:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.4.2) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc 1), No One Lives For Ever (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock 1), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to test the reading time of Acer 2010. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since reading speeds vary between original and backup media. For comparison reasons we added the results of the already tested Ricoh MP72000A, Ricoh MP9200 and Yamaha 2200E. The following screenshot shows the Acer's 2010 reading/writing capabilities:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results:

The Acer 2010 skips the bad sectors of SafeDisc 1 protected CDs very slowly. The drive's reading performance was the worst among the 4 tested drives.

With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, Acer 2010 continues its bad performance, as mentioned earlier.

LaserLock 1/2 Results:

The Acer 2010 performs slightly better with LaserLock 1 protected CDs. However, when reading from the backup CD, the drive needs more time to finish the task.

A LaserLock 2 protected CD is a hard task for all readers. The Acer 2010 seems to perform reasonably and follows the Ricoh 9200 results. The Ricoh MP7200 wins the first place with the original CD and the Yamaha 2200E is the best one with the backup CD.

SecuROM Results:

The Acer 2010 DOESN'T support reading/writing subchannel data from DATA tracks. It supports only reading subChannel data from Audio tracks.
