Ricoh MP5125A DVD+RW

2. CD Data Tests

CD Data Tests

SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results:

As you can see in the above graph, there is not any important performance difference between Ricoh MP5125A and Ricoh MP5120A, at least in this test. Both drives are fast readers and if we try to have a winner, we could say that the MP5125A is slightly improved.

Pressed CD results: (click here to see the CD Speed graph)

Using Nero CD Speed 0.84, we can see that Ricoh's average reading speed is 24.82X. The drive starts reading at 14.88X and ends at 32.22X. Confirming the previous test results, we say that both drives have the same behaviour.

Ricoh's MP5125A "seek times" results are also very good. The drive stays around 100ms in the random mode test.

CDR Media: (click here to see the CD Speed graph)

In the CDR media test, the scenario remains the same with Ricoh MP5225A to keep up with the good performance.

HS-RW media: (Click here to see the CD Speed graph)

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh's HS-RW media. Ricoh MP7320A gave lowest result (25.62x) among the 4 tested drives, since its speed was reduced to 34.23x at the end of the 74min:

DVD Speed v0.52: (DVD Speed graphs for DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW , DVD+R, DVD+RW)

The Ricoh MP5125A has 8X DVD reading speed which is acceptable for our daily needs.

The seek times of the Ricoh MP5120A stays to what drive's specifications indicate- full stroke seek time of 261ms. Almost the same as for the CD format :-)

Ricoh MP5125A is faster than MP5120A and finished the DVD ripping test with an 8021 Kb/S average speed.

Let us now check the drive performance when reading DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW media. The drive lowered the reading speed with DVD-R media and is slower than MP5120A. Also, the MP5125A was slower than its brother drive in the DVD+RW reading test. On the other hand, the MP5125A can read DVD-RW and DVD+R media realy fast.
