HS-RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.85 Results: (Click to see the graph)

For the RW tests we used the Mitsubishi Chemicals HS-RW media written at 10x/12x speeds. The Mitsumi CR-480ATE is currently the faster drive when HS-RW media is being used:

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.2.1.1) 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 time of the drive. 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-W2410A, Yamaha CRW3200E and TEAC CD-W524E. The following picture shows the drive's reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE performed very well with SafeDisc 1 CDs, outperforming Plextor PX-W2410A but stays in the second place behind Yamaha CRW3200E.

With SafeDisc2 protected CDs the performance is very good, but slower than with SafeDisc 1 CDs.

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

With LaserLock 1 protected CDs, the Mitsumi CR-480ATE performs very well, especially with the backup CD.

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE performed very well with LaserLock 2 protected CDs, with both original/backup CDs.

- SecuROM Results

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE does supports reading of SubChannel data from Data/Audio Tracks. The reading performance is very good and only Yamaha CRW3200E is faster.
