IDE CD-Rom - Page 4
(80min and RW CDs)
- 80min tests:
The Teac 540E CD-Rom works also very well with the 80min CDs:
The graph above shows that the Teac 540E outperformed the Pioneer 40x
DVD-Rom but was surpassed by Plextor 40x.
The graph above shows that this time the Teac 540E outperformed both the
Pioneer and the Plextor 40x drives using the Mitsui 80min media. Interestingly
the Plextor 40x only averaged 23.61x. It was a surprise as both of the other
drives read the test CD fine...
- CDR-W tests:
The Teac 540E gave outstanding performance reading RW CDs, reading them
with 30,38 average speed! I do not know of any other CD-Rom that can read
RW CDs so fast!
Verdict of CDR Media Tests:
The tests show that the Teac 540E gave the same results for both CDR media
and pressed CDs. The TEAC did not appear to have any problems with 80min and
RW CDs. The TEAC gave excellent results with RW CDs, It read them as normal
CDs (30.30x average reading speed) and the results appear to show that this
drive may be the best around when using RW media. All of test CD's could be
read by the Teac at impressive speeds. From these tests we feel that the drive
will have no major problems with different CDR/CD RW media and performance on
all type of media is impressive. If anyone does find any problems please let
