Data Tests

- SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

TEAC CD-W540E is the faster drive among the 40x CD-RW drives. The drive's average Sequential reading speed was 5387Kb/s and gave a very high Random I/O result of 1095Kb/s, due to its lowest seek times. LiteOn LTR-40125S comes second in the Sequential test and third in the Random I/O test. PleXWriter PX-W4012A cannot really compete due to its lower reading speed.

In the Nero CD Speed test, TEAC CD-W540E is the fastest drive, with 36.82X average reading speed. LiteOn LTR-40125S comes second with 36.81X and ASUS CRW4012A third with 35.59X.

In the same test, TEAC sets a new standard with the lowest seek time ever measured for an optical drive! TEAC gives 72ms as random seek times and Nero CD Speed with the PlexTools v1.08 CD gave 70ms. The LiteOn comes second with 90ms and ASUS third with 92ms. PleXWriter PX-W4012A is slower with 121ms. With CDR media, the seek times of the drive reached the 73ms, very close to the specifications.

With CDR media, TEAC CD-W540E continues to hold the first place and increased its performance compared to the pressed disc test. It gave an average reading speed of 37.57X and LiteOn LTR-40125S comes second with 36.66X. ASUS CRW4012A comes third with 35.84X and PleXWriter last with 31.59X.
