Data CD Reading Tests
- Pressed CD results (Click for
Philips DVDR824P read the disc at 44.12x CAV. Although the speed is higher
than the drive's specifications (40x), the disc was read accurately at an average
speed of 33.17x. The rest drives were also fast, with Plextor PX-708A to take
the second place with 32.36x, followed by the Ricoh and Optorite drives.
On the seek times test Philips DVDR824P performed very well and needed 100msec
for the Random seek and 168msec for the Full
seek modes. The Plextor drive was the fastest among the rest with only 155msec
for the full stroke, while the Optorite drive gave similar results with Philips.

The seek times are also low for all the drives, as you can see in the below

Philips drive supports
the 40x CAV reading speed with rewritable media. For the reading test

than the one we had with CD-R media. The disc was read under the CAV mode and
the reported average reading speed was 33.01X.
