Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

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.

- CD-R Media results (Click for CDSpeed results)

This time we used a copied disc of the previous pressed CD-ROM and ran the transfer rate tests. The performance is not different and the Philips drive gave the highest average reading speed again.

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

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

The Philips drive supports the 40x CAV reading speed with rewritable media. For the reading test we used 10x High Speed rewritable media by Ricoh.

The performance with CD-RW was not much different 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.
