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:
We used CloneCD (v184.108.40.206) 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
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.
