RW reading tests
For the RW tests we used Ricoh HS RW media written at 10x speed.
As you will notice the drives goes maximum at 32x and not at 40x as CRW2100E
does. Yamaha 16x drive keeps the first place here:
We used CloneCD (v126.96.36.199) and 3 original CDs (Rally Masters, Euro2000 and
Vrally 2 Expert) in order to test the reading time for both Sanyo drives. 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 Plextor PX-W1210S and Yamaha CRW2100E.
a) SafeDisc Results: Euro 2000 (Total: 257982 sectors
- 10141 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max
Both Sanyo drives don't perform so good with SafeDisc protected
CDs and want 60% more time than CRW2100E does to finish the task. This happens
since Sanyo drives doesn't support software but hardware skip error mode. :(
b) LaserLock Results: Rally Masters (Total:
321528 sectors - 6317 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max
The Sanyo drives performed very good with the LaserLock protected
CDs and at least when using original CD smashes the competition (5mins to make
the image when competition wants 30).
c) SecuROM Results:
Both Sanyo drives don't support reading from Subchannel data..:(
Verdict of CloneCD Tests:
We must say we expected better performance from Sanyo drives. As we noticed
at the previous data tests the BP4 is faster than the BP1400P model but slower
in some cases than the competition. The biggest negative is that both drives
doesn't support reading SubChannel data from data/audio tracks.
