CD / DVD Data Tests

SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

Waitec X-FILE showed a good CD reading performance in the Sequential and the Same Sector I/O tests, and is close to the competition in the Random I/O test.

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

The Nero CD Speed 0.84 showed that all the drives in the test have approximately the same average CD reading speed, and Waitec X-FILE keeps the good performance with an 24.75X result.

In the same test, we measure the seek times of Waitec X-FILE. In the random seek test, the drive was fast and the 106 ms result is compatible to the other drives. The problem seems to be in the Full seek test, where the drive finished in 275 ms, slower than the Aopen, Ricoh and Philips drives.

CDR Media: (Click to see the CD Speed graph)

With CDR media, Waitec X-FILE is still fast and met the competition requirements established by the other drives.

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

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh's 4-10x HS-RW media. Again, all the drives behaved in a similar way and finished the reading test at 25X average speed.

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

Waitec X-FILE gave a high DVD-ROM average reading speed and leads in this test. The drive started and ended the reading test in a higher speed than the other drives.

The seek times of Waitec X-FILE are low and the drive gets the second position in the random / 1/3 seek test. The Full seek test result was also surprisingly high.

When ripping DVD movies, Waitec X-FILE has an average ripping performance of 7997Kb/s, slightly faster than the second best performance from Philips DVDRW1208.

We checked the drive's performance when reading DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW media. For this test, we compare Waitec X-FILE with Ricoh MP5125A. Waitec X-FILE is a good DVD-R / +RW / +R reader, and is faster than the Ricoh drive. The Waitec drive was slower in the DVD-RW reading test.

Movie Tests

We tested Waitec X-FILE with many DVDs and our overall impression was very good. When using various DVD movies we didn't encountered any playback problems.
