Ricoh MP7200A CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

RW reading tests

- CD Speed 99 v0.8 Test: (Click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests, we used TDK's HS-RW media. The Ricoh MP7200A gave the second best average reading test result (28.85x) among the 4 tested drives, since at the end of the 74min gave a rather weird slow down to 21.25x:

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.1.1) and 3 original CDs (Rally Masters, Euro2000 and Vrally 2 Expert) in order to test the reading time of Ricoh's MP7200A. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs since the reading speed varies among original and backup media. For comparison reasons we added the results from Yamaha 2100E, PleXWriter PX-W1610A and Sanyo CRD-BP1500P.

- Results:

a) SafeDisc Results: Euro 2000 (Total: 257982 sectors - 10141 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

The Ricoh MP7200A gave a rather bad reading test results with both the original and the backup CD. Both Yamaha 2100E and the PlexWriter PX-W1610A do not have any problem skipping SafeDisc 1.0 errors and give the best results.

b) LaserLock Results: Rally Masters (Total: 321528 sectors - 6317 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

With the LaserLock protected CDs, Ricoh MP7200A has a good performance, especially with the original CD. However the competition is faster at both original/protected CDs.

c) SecuROM Results: Vrally2 Expert - 343767 sectors

The Ricoh MP7200A not only has no problem reading SubChannel data but also reads them damn fast! Just check the above graph :-)
