PleXWriter PX-W2410A CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

PleXWriter PX-W2410A IDE CDR-W- Page 3

RW reading tests

- Nero CD Speed v0.83b Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The Plextor drive got the second place after both Sanyo and above TDK and LiteOn drives, with 25.36X:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.5.1) 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 PleXWriter PX-W2410A. We have also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since reading speeds vary between an original and a backup copy. For comparison reasons we also added the results of the already tested TDK CyClone 241040, Sanyo CRD-BP1500P and LiteOn LTR-24102B. The following screenshot shows the Plextor's reading/writing capabilities:

- SafeDisc 1/2 Results:

The PleXWriter PX-W2410A is slightly faster than the rest 3 drives. However its performance is far away from what Plextor has shown into its previous models, since now the PX-W2410A needs almost 1hour to make an image of SD1/2 protected CDs, when the PX-W1610A needed only 2 mins :(

With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, PleXWriter seems to be worse than LiteOn and Sanyo drives and gets the third place, using the original copy, and takes the last place with the backup disc.

LaserLock 1/2 Results:

This was the most weird test. As you can see the drive doesn't have any numbers posted since when we enabled the "Bad Scanner Sector" option, the drive gave up reading ,when displaying "Searhing for errors" message, and sometimes we had a blue screen from Windows (Windows Protection Error). We have witnessed the same effect with LiteOn 24x, only using the original CD however. We are not sure if the problem lies in the software or in the drive... As soon we have more news will update the review.

We had exactly the same strange effect with LaserLock 2 protected CDs as with LaserLock 1 CDs...

SecuROM Results

The PleXWriter PX-W2410A supports reading/writing of SubChannel data from both Data/Audio tracks. However, compared to the LiteOn 24x drive, it reads them quite slow (9:35mins for image).
