AOpen CRW2040 CD-RW

2. Data Tests

AOpen CRW2040 IDE CDR-W - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: This was used to compare the drive's  I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (see charts). We used a pressed CD containing PlexTools v1.08 for all of the tests.
- Nero CD Speed v0.83b was also used to check the drive's performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we also used the PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results:

The AOpen CRW2040 finishes second and right behind the Ricoh MP7200, giving 4529kb/s as the Average Sequential I/O performance. The drive shows a much lower Random I/O (610Kb/S) and Average Same Sector I/O (1798) performance than the top performer (MP7200A). The differences of course are not so high but they do exist.

- Nero CD Speed v0.84 results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Using Nero CD Speed 0.84b, we can see that the AOpen CRW2040 is a bit slower than the MP7200, confirming our SCSI Mechanic results. The drive starts slightly slower in the start and ends lower again. That explains the lower average reading performance.

In the "Seek Times" test the AOpen CRW2040 performed very well. Its average random seek times are the best, together with the ones by the MP9200A model. The MP7200 can't keep up and loses the first place on that test.

- PSX Pressed Media:
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times and we found out that the AOpen 2040 is not the best solution for someone who wants to have fast PSX images ripped to his HD, since it's the slowest among the four tested drives:

- CDR Media: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Again with CDR media, the AOpen CRW2040 seems slower than the MP7200A drive.
