Pioneer DVD-105S DVD ROM

2. Data Tests

Pioneer DVD-105S IDE DVD-ROM - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0: This was used to compare the Pioneer's 16x vs. 10x DVD-ROm  I/O performance (see charts). We used a pressed CD containing PlexTools v1.06 for all of the tests.
- CD Speed 99 v0.80 was also used to check the drive performance with pressed CDs. For that test we used PlexTools v1.06 original CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0 results

As you can see from the graph above, the DVD-105S model is much faster (as expected) than the previous 10x model. Noticeable is the high Average Random I/O throughput over the 40x CDVD-W drives we tested in past. The drive has averaged 5.0mb/s which is very good.

- CD Speed 99 v0.80 results:

Using CD Speed 0.80, we can see that the DVD-105S model is again faster than the previous 104S model.

The DVD-105S has much higher seek times than the 104s does.

RW reading tests

For the RW tests we used Ricoh HS RW media written at 10x speed:

The 105 model is much improved over the previous 104S model and can deliver up to 24x when reading HS RW media.

CloneCD Tests

- Verdict of CloneCD Tests:
Both Pioneer drives performed very bad in CloneCD tests. The drives have big trouble when trying to read CDs with errors (3h to make image of protected CD). This may be a drawback for possible buyers. Notice that both drives don't support reading of SubChannel data, as CloneCD reported.
