- CD WinBench 99 v1.1. This was used to compare the Sanyo CRD-BP3
SCSI CDR-W drive with various others CDR-W drives (see charts).
- CD Speed 99 v0.70 was also used to check the drive performance with
pressed CDs. For that test we used PlexTools v1.05 original CD.

Verdict of data (pressedCDs) tests
The Sanyo CRD-BP3 CDR-W drive was a little weaker than the PleXWriter PX-W1210A
in most tests. Its average reading speed using PlexTools v1.05 was 23.33x
when the PX-W1210A had 24.98x. The Sanyo CRD-BP3 however showed much better
seek times than most of the other CDR-W drives we have ever tested..In the WinBench
99 test, the Sanyo CRD-BP3 got the second best overall WinMark value behind
the PX-W1210A. It reached a transfer rate of 4.34mb/s and 2.12mb/s on the outside
and inside of the disc, which are a bit lower than the PX-W1210A ones. Again
in that test it had the lower seek time (137ms). The CPU usage was also average
(6.55%). Overall the Sanyo CRD-BP3 model seems to have been improved over the
previous BP2 model, but seems to need a little fine-tuning to reach the current
king of reading performance PX-W1210A.
