CR-4809TE IDE CDR-W - Page
- 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 tests.
* Nero CD Speed v0.84b 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 Mitsumi CR-4809TE gave an average level reading performance compared with
the competition. The drive has the third best "Average Sequential I/O"
mark, and the PleXWriter PX-W2410A is still the best fine tuned drive for reading
pressed CDs. It has also the second best "Average Random I/O" mark
(843Kb/s) and the third best "Same Sector I/O" mark.

The Nero CD Speed results confirmed our previous tests results. The Mitsumi
drive gets the third place behind PleXWriter and LiteOn drives. It starts reading
at 18.25X and also ends at 39.98X. Future updates could improve reading performance...
The Mitsumi CR-4809TE has rather high "Random Seek" results with
112ms. The TEAC CD-W524E is simply un-beatable with 77secs and the LiteOn LTR-24102B
is also faster.
- 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 time of the Mitsumi CR-4809TE, which
is the third best with 268secs. The PleXWriter PX-W2410A does the same task
at only 54secs :-)
- CDR Media: (Click

The Mitsumi CR-4809TE got the last position when reading CDR media. The drive
may improve its reading performance but the competition is faster. The closest
performance comes from TEAC CD-W524E, which is slightly faster, while the PleXWriter
PX-W2410A holds the first place.
