Ricoh MP7200A CD-RW

2. Data Tests

Ricoh MP7200A IDE CDR-W - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: This was used to compare the Ricoh'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.
- CD Speed 99 v0.80 also used to check the drive performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we used PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

The Ricoh MP7200, due to its very good seek times, has the biggest "Average Random I/O" result among the 4 tested drives. The drive gets the second place in the "Average Sequential I/O" with 4555kb/s. As it seems it needs further development to reach the first PX-W1610A. Last the drive's "Average Same Sector I/O" value is low (among with Sanyo's CRD-BP1500P), showing that the drive's caching is not the best around.

- CD Speed 99 v0.80 results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Using CD Speed 0.80, we have different results from the SCSI Mechanic tests. Here the Ricoh MP7200A gets the first place (31.13x) with the PX-W1610A second (with slight difference). The BP1500P comes third and the Yamaha 2100E comes last.

Again in the "Seek Times" test results, the Ricoh MP7200A gets the first place with under 100ms seek time complying with the drive's specifications. The competition has far bigger access times and we assume that must follow soon Ricoh's example.

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

The Ricoh MP7200A continues to lead the speed-reading race with 31.43x average reading speed. The PleXWriter PX-W1610A is again second, Sanyo CRD-BP1500P third and Yamaha 2100E last.
