3. RW reading tests

AOpen CRW2040 IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.84b Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

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:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.5.1) 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 reading/writing capabilities:

- 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.

SecuROM Results:

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!
