The Teac CD-552E supports 52X CAV CD-R reading speed. The drive
started reading at 23.1X and reached 52.32X at the end of the disc, resulting
to an average reading speed of 39.71X. In the same test, the CyberDrive 52X
was faster with 40.06X.
The seek times of Teac CD-552E were low in all the stroke modes, and agree
with the drive's specifications. The Samsung SC-152L has the lowest Random seek
times, while the TEAC and CyberDrive 52X drives have the exact same seek times
in all three tests.
