CD Data Tests

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

Using Nero CD Speed, we can see that both drives have almost the same performance. The Ricoh MP5125A gave a 24.82X, while the Philips DVDRW228 24.81X.

Ricoh MP5125A has better "Seek Time" results in the same test. The Philips drive has 111ms in the Random test, 141ms in the 1/3 and 236ms in the Full Stroke test.

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

In the CDR media test, the Ricoh MP5125A has slight better performance with 25.38X. The Philips drive follows with 25.32X.

The Seek Times with CD-R media are a little worst for both drives. The Philips DVDRW228 gave 113ms with pressed (Random) and 116ms with CD-R media, and a bigger difference is shown at the Full Stroke test with 236ms and 253ms respectively.

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

For the RW tests, we used Ricoh's HS-RW media. Philips DVRRW228 has a higher average reading speed than Ricoh MP5125A:

DVD Data Tests

 

- DVD Media Results: (DVD Speed graphs for DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW , DVD+R, DVD+RW)

The Philips drive supports 8X DVD reading speed, which is enough for user's daily needs. Ricoh is a little faster than the Philips drive.

The seek times of the Philips DVDRW228 are better than Ricoh's MP5125 with pressed DVD-ROM (single layer).

The Ricoh MP5125A is faster than the Philips DVDRW228 drive at the DVD ripping test. The drive reached the 8021Kb/s with DVD Decrypter using Matrix DVD title. The Philips follows with 7842Kb/s.

The Philips DVDRW228 read almost all the DVD recordable discs, except from the DVD-RW. Although the drive recognizes the disc, it refused to work with DVD Speed. Ricoh MP5125A didn't show such behaviour. Also the Philips drive reads at full speed DVD+RW discs, while Ricoh MP5125A doesn't. Future firmware upgrades could improve Philips DVDRW228 compatibility with the DVD-RW format.
