- Page 3
We used CloneCD (v184.108.40.206 beta 9) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc
1), No One Lives For Ever / Serious Sam (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock
1), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to
test the reading time of Toshiba SD-R1202. We also tested the reading performance
with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original
and backup media. The following picture shows the reading/writing capabilities
of the drive:
- PSX Pressed Media
Toshiba SD-R1202 finished the PSX ripping fast in 79 seconds. However, the
PlexWriter was faster by 25 seconds.
- SafeDisc 1/2 Results
Toshiba SD-R1202 finished the SafeDisc 1 test in 4 minutes. The performance
is good, but the competition from the 16x CD-RW drives is strong.
With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, the Toshiba drive is faster and in the original
CD test, managed to finish the task faster than the Yamaha and Lite-On drives.
LaserLock 1/2 Results
The drive was the faster in the original CD test and gets the first position.
In the backup CD test, the performance is higher but PlexWriter PX-W1610A was
Toshiba was slower in the LaserLock v.2 test, at least with the original CD.
The drive gave the second best performance with the pressed CD and the third
with the backup media.
It took less than 3 minutes for Toshiba SD-R1202 to finish the SecuROM v.2
test. The drive leads the race and is faster than the other 16x CD-RW drives
of the test.
