We used CloneCD (v184.108.40.206) and 5 original CDs - No One Lives For Ever / Serious
Sam (SafeDisc 2), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2)
- in order to test the reading time of Waitec X-FILE. 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 drive's reading/writing
PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image
to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times for Waitec X-FILE, which is
SafeDisc v.2 Results
Waitec X-FILE seems to have problems with SafeDisc v.2 protected
CDs. The drive was reading slowly and Aopen RW5120 / Philips DVDRW1208 are faster.
LaserLock v.2 Results
In the LaserLock v.2 test, Waitec X-FILE was slow in the original
CD test but in the backup test was faster and gave the second best performance,
following Ricoh MP5120A.
Good performance for Waitec X-FILE in the SecuROM v.2 test. The drive shares
the first performance position with the Ricoh and Philips drives in the original
title test, and kept the same performance in the backup CD test.
