SfinX 16 COMBO
IDE CD-RW/DVD-ROM - Page
We used CloneCD (v188.8.131.52) and 4 original CDs - Serious Sam 2 (SafeDisc 2),
Desperados (LaserLock 2), V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) and NBA Jam Extreme (PSX)
- in order to test the reading time of the drives. We also tested the reading
performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies
between original and backup media. The following pictures show the drive reading/writing
capabilities as CloneCD reports:
- PSX Pressed Media
Toshiba SD-R1202 finished the PSX ripping fast in 79 seconds. Waitec SfinX
was 18 seconds slower.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, the Toshiba drive is very fast in both tests.
Waitec SfinX 16 was really slow and finished the task in 1 hour.
- LaserLock v.2 Results
Again in the LaserLock v.2 test, the Toshiba drive was faster than the Waitec,
especially in the backup disc test.
- SecuROM Results
It took less than 3 minutes for both drives to finish the SecuROM v.2 test.
The WAITEC SFINX16 can only read 16Bytes of SubChannel data, and not full 96Bytes
(CD+G). The differences in the performance cannot be clearly made out and both
drives are fast.
