Data Tests (74min
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 Sanyo CRD-BP3 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. ;)
As the test results shows, the Sanyo CRD-BP3 does not have any
problems reading various media, written at 12x.
- 80min tests:
The PX-W1210A takes again the lead from the BP3, but the gap
between them is very small. However BP3 takes the lead in random seek times
as the following graph states:
- RW reading tests:
The Sanyo CRD-BP3 has an improved RW reading speed (24x average) to the
PX-W1210A (18x average). That's a major improvement over the previous models
Verdict of CDR Media Tests
The tests results show that the Sanyo CRD-BP3 has good, solid performance
using both pressed and normal CD media. Again, as we saw in the pressed CDs
tests, it has a lower reading performance over the PX-W1210A but better seek
times. Furthermore, it's RW reading speed is very good and that's something
that Plextor could consider improving?
