CD-W548E IDE CD-RW - Page
We used CloneCD 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 times of the drive. 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 show the drive(s) reading/writing features
as CloneCD reports:
- PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image
to the HD with CloneCD. The TEAC drive is the fastest drive and first place
with only 45secs!
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The TEAC drive performed quite well and gets the second place behind the
ASUS CRW4816A. The drive needs 4:11mins to finish the task.
- LaserLock v.2 Results
The TEAC drive was slower with LaserLock2 media, as was expected.
With the original disc it needs 11mins, while with the backup one only 5mins.
- SecuROM v.2 Results
All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The faster drive
comes from CyberDrive. The TEAC CD-W548E performed quite well and gets the second
position with the CD-R media.
