24x Slim CD-RW Combo Roundup Vol.1- Page 3
Data CD Reading Tests
drives support the 24x CAV maximum reading speed. However, the obtained reading
speed in the outer tracks of the disc was higher and reached 25x. The drives
gave almost the same average reading speed, approximately 19.1x.
On the seek times test with the 80min pressed disc, the Asus
drive was faster in all three seek modes. LiteOn LSC-24081MX was slow in
the random seek with 191msec, and 222msec for the full seek mode.
Both drives were slower when tested on 80min CD-R media. This time the average
reading speed was 18.9x for the Asus and 18.97x for the LiteOn drive.
As in the test with the pressed disc, the Asus
SCB-2408 performed better than the LiteOn drive and gave low seek times. The
results for both drives are not very changed over those with the pressed disc,
but the LiteOn drive could definitely perform better.
the HS-RW reading test we used
Mitsubishi Chemicals 24x US-RW media.
Both drives read the US-RW disc under the CAV mode and
the reported speeds were almost the same. The LiteOn drive was slightly faster
with a 19.11x average reading speed and Asus follows close with a 18.64x speed.
