TDK CyClone 241040 CD-RW

2. Data Tests

TDK CyClone 241040 IDE CDR-W - Page 2

Data Tests

Test Method:
- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: 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 v1.08 for all of the tests.
- CD Speed 99 v0.82b also used to check the drive performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we used PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results:

The TDK CyClone 241040 shows about the same performance as the Sanyo CRD-BP1500P. In the "Average Random I/O" test it gave around 630Kb/s, while the Sanyo drive had slight higher (640kb/s).. The TDK drive also gave the same result in the "Average Sequential I/O", 4464Kb/s just like the Sanyo drive.. Lastly in the "Same Sector I/O" test it gave around 1792Kb/s, while the Sanyo drive had 1793kb/s. Both TDK and Sanyo drive seem faster than the Yamaha 2200E but slower than the Ricoh 7200A.

- CD Speed 99 v0.82b results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Using CD Speed 0.80 we confirmed the SCSI Mechanic results. Both TDK and Sanyo drives seem to have the exact same performance, as you might expect, and get the second place behind Ricoh 7200A.

In the "Seek Times" test, again both TDK and Sanyo drives have the same level of performance. Of course they cannot compete with Ricoh 7200, which shows an access time of under 100ms, and come second with 124ms average random time.

- CDR Media: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

Again with CDR media, both Sanyo and TDK drives have the same performance. The Ricoh 7200A seems faster and the Yamaha 2200E gets the last position, due to its slowdown after the 65mins limit.
