Ricoh MP7163A CD-RW

2. Data Tests

Ricoh MP7163A IDE CDR-W - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: This was used to compare the drive'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 AOpen 1632 seems faster than the Ricoh MP7163A in almost all reading tests, at the SCSI Mechanic tests. The Ricoh MP7163A produced 3633kb/s, which is far away from what the AOpen drive can do. Also the AOpen CRW1632 seems faster in the "Average Random I/O" test.

- Nero CD Speed v0.84 results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Using Nero CD Speed 0.84b, we see a different image since it reports that both drive have equal reading speed. Both drives have 24.84X average reading speed.

In the "Seek Times" test; the AOpen CRW1632 seems performed slight better than Ricoh MP7163A. Both drives have 93ms average seek times but the rest (1/3, Full Stroke) results are different.

- PSX Pressed Media

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 Ricoh MP7163A is faster than AOpen CRW1632 as CloneCD reported:

- CDR Media: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

With CDR media, the AOpen CRW1632 seems 0.02X faster than Ricoh MP7163A.
