PleXWriter PX-W2410A CD-RW

2. Data Tests

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: 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 v1.08 for all of the tests.
- Nero CD Speed v0.83b was also used to check the drive's performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we also used the PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results:

The PleXWriter PX-W2410A seems to be a great perfomer, but into SCSI Mechanic tests got the second place behind LiteOn LTR-24102B. The drive's "Average Sequential I/O" is only 11kb/s lower than the LiteOn drive, which isn't really a noticable difference, under normal use. The drive's long seek times doesn't help it reach the top at the "Average Random I/O" test, and stays second with 720Kb/s, but far above the Sanyo & TDK drives. Finally into the same sector test even if it manages to get almost 22.34Mb/s, stays behind the LiteOn LTR-24102B, which figures at the top with an awesome 26.1MB/s.

- Nero CD Speed v0.83 results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Using Nero CD Speed 0.83b, we have major changes from the SCSI Mechanic test. Here the PleXWriter PX-W2410A is the king with 31.8X average reading speed and LiteOn stays second with 0.92X performance gap. Usualy our test results from both Nero CD Speed and SCSI Mechanic tests are the same but this time were not...

Into the average seek times test, Plextor gets the last, and worse, position with 155secs random seek time. The LiteOn is the top performer with only 90secs random seek time and both Sanyo and TDK drives gets the second and third place.

- PSX Pressed Media

In order to fulfil user requests, we have included a test with mixed mode CDs (mainly PSX). For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times and the PleXWriter PX-W2410A seems the definite choice for someone who wants to have fast PSX images ripped into his HD:

The PleXWriter PX-W2410A again climbs at the first place, but with a pretty low performance gap of 0.32X, among the four tested drives.
