For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The AOpen CRW2040 drive produced
readings very close to the ones by Ricoh MP7200A:
We used CloneCD (v22.214.171.124) 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
performance of AOpen CRW2040. We also tested the reading performance with backups
of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup
media. For comparison reasons we added the results of the already tested Ricoh
MP7200A/MP9200A and Acer CRW2010A. The following picture shows the AOpen CRW2040
- SafeDisc 1/2 Results:
The AOpen CRW2040 is the top performer when reading SafeDisc1/2 protected
CDs. Its outstanding performance gives the competition a run for its money.
Again with SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, the AOpen CRW2040 stays
at the top. As for the rest of the drives, they must really improve their reading
performances for be able to keep up.
LaserLock 1/2 Results:
In the LaserLock protected CDs test, the AOpen CRW1632 gave back the best
reading time with both the original and the backup CDs. The Ricoh MP7200A stays
close with the original CD but falls behind when the backup medium is used.
Again with LaserLock 2 protected CDs, the AOpen reads the original CD much
faster than the competition. With the backup CD, the Ricoh MP7200A performs
slightly better and wins.
The AOpen CRW2040 can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks very fast!
The Ricoh MP7200A can compete and win with the original CD, but it stays far
away when the backup CD is used. Truly an outstanding and impressive performance
by the AOpen CRW2040A!
