For the RW tests we used the Ricoh's HS-RW media written at 10x speed. The
Yamaha 3200E performed very well and could possibly had the first place if AOpen's
CRW2440 wasn't in this comparison:
We used CloneCD (v188.8.131.52) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc 1), No
One Lives For Ever (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock 1), Desperados (LaserLock
2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to test the reading times of
Yamaha CRW3200E. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the
original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media.
For comparison reasons we added the results of the already tested PleXWriter
PX-W2410A, LiteOn LTR-24102B and AOpen CRW2440. The following picture shows
the Yamaha's CRW3200E reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:
- SafeDisc 1/2 Results
The Yamaha CRW3200E performs very good with SD1 protected CDs and gives the
highest reading performance. The competition is close but Yamaha 3200E leads
With SafeDisc2 protected CDs, things are different. The Yamaha
CRW3200E gave back a rather slow reading speed with the original CD, but with
the backup media follows closely follows the PleXWriter PX-W2410A.
- LaserLock 1/2 Results
In the LaserLock 1 protected CDs test, the Yamaha drive has a rather average
performance with the original CD. Performance is better with backup CD, but
the competition is faster.
The Yamaha CRW3200E performed much better with LaserLock 2 protected CDs.
The drive, even slow, finished the tasks in an adequate amount of time. The
LiteOn LTR-24102B holds the first place and is AOpen follows in the second place.
- SecuROM Results
The Yamaha CRW3200E does support reading SubChannel from Data/Audio Tracks
and reads them quite fast!
