At the 40X (default) reading speed, the EHW-4048U drive is not the faster
among the competitor drives since it gave only a 31.0X average reading speed.
However under the 'Turbo' mode it superpasses the competition giving an impressive
37.43X average reading speed.
The seek times of the AOpen EHW-4048U are very close to each other either
when the drive is set to 40X or to the 48X speed. The only difference can be
seen at the Full Stroke test. The faster drive comes from WAITEC with 87ms for
the random and 161ms for the full stroke.
