Philips JackRabbit FireWire CD-RW

3. HS-RW reading tests

Yamaha CRW70 vs Philips JackRabbit - Page 3

HS-RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.85 Results: (Click to see the Yamaha/Philips CD Speed Graphs)

For the RW tests we used the Mitsubishi Chemicals HS-RW media written at 10x/12x speeds. Both drives read HS-RW at full speed, and Philips PCRW1208Jr due to its 36x reading speed manages to take the first place:

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 Philips PCRW1208JR and Yamaha CR-W70. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media. The following picture shows the reading/writing capabilities of both drives, as CloneCD reports:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results

The winner here is clearly identified. Yamaha was really faster than JackRabbit while reading from the original and the backup SafeDisk v1 protected CDs.

Yamaha also gave a better result in reading a SafeDisk v2 protected CD. Philips JackRabbit is close to Yamaha's performance in the original CD test, but fails to follow Yamaha when reading the backup CD.

- LaserLock 1/2 Results

As in the SafeDisk v2 test, in the LaserLock v1 test the Yamaha drive is better. Philips keeps its performance close to Yamaha in the original CD test, but it is not fast enough with the backup CD.

The scenario remains the same for the LaserLock v.2 protected CDs. Yamaha has better results than Philips with an additional high performance in the backup CD test.

- SecuROM Results

Philips does not support reading of subchannel data from data/audio tracks, as CloneCD reports. Yamaha finished the job in 285 sec and 288 sec for the original/backup CDs, respectively.
