Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

Starting speed in this test for the BenQ DW800A drive was 18.54x and finished at 44.25x giving an average speed of 33.2x. This was the best time in our comparison with the other two drives. In addition, the drive confirmed the manufacturers specifications for 40x CAV reading.

In the same test, BenQ had acceptable seek times although not the best. Optorite had the fastest values while LiteOn had the slowest.

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

We made a copy of the previous pressed CD in order to check the drive's capabilities when reading CD-R media. As in the previous test, the BenQ DW800A had the fastest performance though LiteOn had a better starting speed. The difference between the drives was approximately 2~3x at the average speed.

BenQ had the second best seek times. The fastest once again was Optorite, with LiteOn the slowest. As a sidenote, BenQ seek times are fairly good being above average.

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

For the reading test we used 24x Ultra Speed rewritable media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.

BenQ managed to finish this test, being again the faster in all measurements. It started the test at 18.6x and finished at 43.7x. The average speed was 33x. Optorite and LiteOn had 30.65x and 25.29x respectively.
