Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0.0.224: This was used to compare the Plextor's I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (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 PX-W1610A is the fastest CDR-W drive currently available. The drive's performance was the best in all 3 tests: Best "Average Random I/O" (776kb/s), "Average Sequential I/O" (4612kb/s) and "Average Same Sector I/O" (13780) results. The competition simply follows, in the forms of TDK CyClone 161040/Sanyo CRD-BP1400P (second/third) and the Yamaha 2100E (fourth). Very good performance from the PX-W1610A! (Remember all 4 drives support up to 40x reading).

- CD Speed 99 v0.80 results (check the CD Speed graph over here)

Using CD Speed 0.80, we can see that the PX-W1610A again has the fastest "average speed" (30.92x). The TDK CyClone/Sanyo CRD-BP1400P follows (29.92x) and Yamaha again comes last (28.83x).

In the seek times tests, the PX-W1610A gave out the highest times which made it come last. The TDK CyClone/Sanyo CRD-BP1400P drives give the lowest seek times, Yamaha follows and the PleXWriter comes fourth. The time difference is not that big but there is.
