Yamaha CRW3200E CD-RW

3. Data Tests

Yamaha CRW3200E IDE CDR-W- Page 3

Data Tests

- Test Method

* SCSI Mechanic v3.0x: This was used to compare the drive's I/O performance against other various CDR-W drives (see charts). We used a pressed CD containing PlexTools v1.08 for all tests.
* Nero CD Speed v0.84b was also used to check the drive's performance with pressed CDs. For that test, we also used the PlexTools v1.08 pressed CD.

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

The Yamaha CRW3200E gave the lower score in "Average Sequential I/O" tests results and came 3rd in the "Average Random I/O" test. In the "Average Same Sector I/O" tests, the drive showed a good performance and got the third place. The PleXWriter PX-W2410A strongly holds the first place.

- Nero CD Speed v0.84 results: (Click to see the CD Speed Graph)

The Nero CD Speed results confirmed our previous tests results. The Yamaha drive seems to be the slower among the 4 tested drives. It starts reading at lower speed than the other drives in start (18.31X) and also ends at lower speed. Yamaha should tweak drive's performance in order to compete to other manufacturers.

The seek times for Yamaha CRW2200E were among the best in our test results. The drive has the lower "Random Seek" time (84ms) and stays into the competition in the 1/3 and the full stroke test results.

- PSX Pressed Media

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading time of the Yamaha CRW3200E, which is the highest:

Things are better ,while testing CD-R media, for the Yamaha CRW2200E. The drive's average reading speed is now 31.21X, but again the competition is faster.
