RW reading tests

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

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh's 4-10x HS-RW media. The Philips's average reading speed with HS-RW media is 24.92X, lower than Ricoh MP5120A:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v3.1.1.0) 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 the drive. We also tested its reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between the original and the backup media. The following pictures show reading/writing capabilities of the drive:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The Philips DVDRW208 really smashes the competition when reading SafeDisc 1/2 protected CDs. It needs only 3mins to end the task, which is much faster than other DVD recorders, including Ricoh MP5120A.

With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, the Philips DVDRW208 performs lower than with SD1 CDs, but the final reading time is very good.

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

In the LaserLock 1/2 protected CDs test, the Philips DVDRW208 has lower reading performance than Ricoh MP5120A, with the original CD. When we used the backup disc, the drive reads it very fast.

- SecuROM Results

The Philips DVDRW208A can read SubChannel Data from Data/Audio tracks.
