Teac DV-W50D and Memorex Dual-X1 - Page 3
Data CD Reading Tests
Both drives support 32x CAV reading for CD-ROM/-R media. As
we can see from the CD Speed results in the graph above both drives have approximately
disc. The reported start reading
15.04x for Teac and 15.01x for Memorex while the end speed was
33.03x and 33.97x respectively.
In the same task, the seek times for Teac are lower which means that is
faster than Memorex.
At the Random mode the difference wasn't very big but in the other two modes
the 8ms difference is a considerable value.
With the 80min CD-R media the results are almost the same with
the previous test. Both drives needed the same time to finish the task , with
reported average speed 25.54X for Teac and 25.56X
In the graph above we can see the seek time for all modes
of both drives with an 80min CD-R media. Teac is again a little faster than
Memorex but not with great differences.
For the RW reading test we used an Asus 4x-12X HS-RW media and
Nero CDSpeed software. Ending the test we saw that the drives had similar performance
results with a slight difference at the start speed which was 15.44X for Teac
and 14.66 for Memorex. End and average speed was almost the same.
