CRD-BP900P IDE CDR-W -
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-BP900P drive performs.
CD Speed 99 v0.66 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 we can see the Sanyo CRD-BP900P does not have any problems
reading various media which are written at 12x. It reads them with an average
(80min and RW CDs)
- 80min tests:
The graph above shows that both Sanyo drives have exactly the
same performance when reading 80min CDs. We have a tie over here!
- RW tests
The SCSI model this time took pole position with a slight higher
reading speed with the various RW discs:
Verdict of CDR Media Tests
The tests results shows that the Sanyo CRD-BP900P has good, solid
performance using both pressed and normal media. In most cases it outperformed
the SCSI model in most tests and gave slightly higher scores. I guess you cannot
make a verdict only from those tests so let's head over for CloneCD tests!
