LiteOn LTR-16101B CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

Lite-On LTR-16101B IDE CDR-W - Page 3

RW reading tests

- CD Speed 99 v0.8 Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The Lite-On drive gave the worst average reading test result (15x) among the 4 tested drives:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.0.20) 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 Lite-On 16101B. 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 PleXWriter PX-W1610A, Sanyo CRD-BP1400P and Teac 516EB. The following picture shows the Lite-On reading/writing capabilities:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results:

The Lite-On performed average when reading protected SafeDisc v1 CDs. Its performance was the third best and both Plextor, Sanyo leads the race...

The Lite-On continues to perform fairly good with SafeDisc v2 protected CDs. The PleXWriter continues to lead the race and Sanyo comes second.

LaserLock 1/2 Results:

In the LaserLock protected CDs test, the Lite-On seems performing slightly better and gets the second place with the protected CD. However, with the backup (CDR media), again it slows down and comes third.

Here is where the Lite-On drive managed to get the first place...Only with the protected CD. The rest competition has a really hard time to make an image of LaserLock 2 protected CDs. Things are not the same in the backup CD where Lite-On gets the last position...

SecuROM Results

That was a un-pleasant surprise...The Lite-On refused to read data from data/audio tracks according to the CloneCD. Therefore gets a 0 mark.
