Freecom FS-1

2. Data tests

Data Tests

SCSI Mechanic v3.0x results

For the data reading tests, we add the results of two other external USB drives, that support 24x reading. In the Random I/O test, Freecom FS-1 gave the fastest read rates among PlexWriter PX-S88TU and Teac CD-W280PU. In the Sequential test, the drive is slower than the Plextor drive but is still slightly faster than Teac CD-W280PU. The Same Sector test was not the best for Freecom FS-1, and the drive did not manage to reach the performance of the other drives.

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

In the Nero CD Speed 0.85e, Freecom FS-1 gave a 18.04x average reading speed, and is slightly faster than Teac CD-W280PU. The results are confirmed by the previous Scsi Mechanic test.

This time we used the "CDVD Benchmark" software, available at http://www.cd-bremse.de, in order to test the access times of Freecom FS-1. Nero CDSpeed 0.85e could not give any seek time result for the specific drive. The results showed that the drive has a 111msec random access time and 203msec for full stroke access.

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

With CD-R media, the performance classification remains the same as in the pressed media test. All the drives increased their average reading speed.

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

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh HS-RW media. Both PlexWriter PX-S88TU and Teac CD-W280PU support up to 8x rewriting speeds, so we exclude their performances from this test. Freecom FS-1 finished the HSRW media reading test with a 12.37x average reading speed.

The access time of the drive was 130msec (random access) and 258 msec (full stroke).
