TEAC 516E CD-RW

3. RW reading tests

RW reading tests

- CD Speed 99 (HS-RW media) results: (click here to see the CD Speed 99 graph)

For the RW tests we used the Verbatim HS RW media written at 10X speed. TEAC CD-W516EB read the HS RW with an average speed of 28.36X. The performance was close enough to the 29.64 the Yamaha CRW2100E had given. TEAC started reading at 17.61X speed coming to the end at 32.05X:

CloneCD Tests

- Procedure:
We used CloneCD (v3.0.0.9) and 3 original CDs (Rally Masters, Euro2000 and Vrally 2 Expert) in order to test the reading time of TEAC CD-W516EB. 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 of the already tested Yamaha CRW2100E, PleXWriter PX-W1610A, Sanyo CRD-BP1400P. The following graph is showing the TEAC's CD-W516EB capabilities. The following picture is showing the TEAC's CD-516EB device capabilities:

- Results:

a) SafeDisc Results: Euro 2000 (Total: 257982 sectors - 10141 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

b) LaserLock Results: Rally Masters (Total: 321528 sectors - 6317 bad sectors) - Reading Speed: Max

c) SecuROM Results: Vrally2 Expert - 343767 sectors

As all our tests indicate, the Teac 516E is a bad performer in our CloneCD reading tests. The drive ability to skip error is very poor and that is visible from the time, which is needed for making an image of SD1 protected CD (22mins), when the competitors need only few minutes. The same thing happens with LaserLock protected CDs and the drive seem performing better in the SecuROM test.
