Ricoh MP7120A CD-RW

3. Data Tests (74min CDs)

Data Tests (74min CDs)

Test Method: CD Media 74min tests
We created a DataCD with Nero 5.0 using the Sanyo CRD-BP2 CDR-W drive. Several copies were created on different media types at 12x speed. This test was performed in order to test the compatibility with various CD media, that have been written at 12x, how the Ricoh MP7120A drive performs. CD Speed 99 v0.70 was used to measure the performance of the drive with the different media.

Notice when you read the graphs, to check both the three tests results (start, end, average) since they give the most complete view of each media performance. Most users however, will prefer just to read only the average speed results. ;)

DataCD comparison (12x write speed)

As the test results shows, the Ricoh MP7120A does not have any problems reading various media, written at 12x.

- 80min tests:

The PX-W1210A continues to have the best-read performance (25.26x) even with 80min CDs. The BP3 and MP7120A have similar performance (24.5x) results. The previous test results showed that the MP7120A still has the best seek times:

- RW reading tests:
The Ricoh MP7120A has very good RW reading performance and is equal to the Sanyo's CRD-BP3 model (24.1x). The Plextor PX-W1210A limps behind with only 18.32x read performance:

Using Ricoh HS RW media MP7120A gave the best reading results (24.41x) with BP3 (24.38x) and the PX-W1210A (18.37x):

Verdict of CDR Media Tests:
The tests results with 74min and 80min CDR media showed that the Ricoh MP7120A has very good performance. Of course, it doesn't compare to the PX-W1210A in terms of sequential reading. It did however, beat the PX-W1210A in the seek time and RW media tests. As for the Sanyo BP3, it appears that improvements are required to catch both of other drives. This is the oldest of all the models and maybe improvements will happen when Sanyo release a new model ;)
