TEAC 540E CD-ROM

3. Data Tests (74min CDs)

Data Tests (74min CDs)

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 various write speeds (4x, 8x, 12x). This was performed to test the compatibility with various CD media and the Teac 540E CD-Rom. 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. ;)

DataCD comparison (4x write speed)  

As you can see the drive does not have any problems with various media types and reads them with a 25x average speed. The Princo and Mitsui media seem to have slightly better performance compared to the other media types used.

DataCD comparison (8x write speed)

Again the Teac 540E has no problem with media written at 8x. The average reading speed is again 25x between various media types used.

DataCD comparison (12x write speed)

As we expected, the Teac 540E CD-Rom, also handles the media written at 12x with the Sanyo CRD-BP2 really well.

Total Results from 74min Media:
The Teac 540E CD-Rom also seems to work very well with all CDR media (Gold, Silver, Blue). The average reading speed is 25x (the total CD time is 45min).
