TDK CyClone 161040 CD-RW

2. Data Tests

TDK CyClone 16/10/40 IDE CDR-W - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0: This was used to compare the TDK's I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (see charts). We used a pressed CD containing PlexTools v1.06 for all of the tests.
- CD Speed 99 v0.75 was also used to check the drive performance with pressed CDs. For that test we used PlexTools v1.06 original CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0 results:

As you can see from the graph above, the TDK drive performed very well in most tests. Its performance was the same as with CRD-BP1400P in both Sequential and Same Sector I/O tests. This is natural since both models are based in the same drive. The slight differences can be explained as the differences from the same production model known issue. The Yamaha still seems to give out the best Random I/O mark but looses the title of the fastest recorder around -in the reading part, since both BP1400P and TDK CyClone climbed up to 4460 kb/s! Very good performance from the TDK CyClone 161040.

- CD Speed 99 v0.80 results:

Using CD Speed 0.80, we can see that the TDK and the CRD-BP1400P give out the same performance and still hold the first place among Yamaha 2100E and BP4 models.

The TDK CyClone drive seems improved over the Sanyo BP1400P/BP4 drives since in all our tests it gave the lower seek time mark. The Yamaha 2100E has the higher seek time and as it seems Sanyo based drives really smash the competition! Let's wait however to see how the coming PleXWriter PX-W1610A would perform before rushing announcing the title of the faster CDR-W drive around.
