Freecom FS-1

3. CloneCD reading tests

Freecom FS-1 Slimline CD-RW - Page 3

CloneCD Reading Tests

Procedure

We used CloneCD (v4.0.0.1) 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 Freecom FS-1. 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 capabilities. Notice that the drive is not compatible to CloneCD RAW-DAO writing mode:

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 and the Freecom FS-1 was slower than the other readers and took 179secs to finish the task:

SafeDisc v.2 results

With SafeDisc v2.0 protected CDs, was faster than the competition in the original CD test, but cannot beat the PlexWriter in the backup CD reading test.

LaserLock v.2 results

In the LaserLock v.2 protected CDs test, the drive finished the original CD test in 24 minutes, while Teac CD-W280PU was faster. With the backup disc, all the drives finished at approximately same times, with PlexWriter to have a light lead.

SecuROM Results

Freecom FS-1 can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks fast. The drive finished the test in 22 min and is slower than the competitors.
