- Pressed CD results (74min
All the drives support the 52X CAV reading speed. As you can see there is not
any clear lead but speaking with numbers, the BTC drive is the fastest in the
test with 39.92X average reading speed.
BTC 5224IM and CyberDrive CW099D gave almost the same seek times with pressed
discs, and seems to be the fastest in this test. The Asus CRW5224 is slightly
slower while the Aopen CRW5224 follows.

With CD-R media, the BTC drive keeps up the good performance and finishes with
a 39.34X average reading speed. All the drives finished the test in a faster

The seek times with CD-R media are slightly lower than in the previous test
with the pressed discs. The BTC and Asus drives lead the race giving less than
80msec for the Random seek mode.
