2. Data CD Reading Tests

Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

As can be seen from the table above, the Philips JR4DVDRW was faster than the Pioneer DVR-SK12D used here for comparison, and in fact a good deal faster. The End Speed for the Philips drive confirms the manufacturer's stated maxixmum in the specifications (40x), reaching a final reading speed of 42.56x.

Unfortunately the Philips drive was not compatible with CDSpeed's seek times test, neither with the latest version nor with older versions. As such, we cannot present seek times against those of the Pioneer for comparison purposes. For this reason, we present access times, measured again with CDSpeed.

 

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

In this test, we copied the pressed disc used in the previous test onto CDR media, in order to check the reading behaviour of drive with CDR media and to also check if there is a difference in comparison with the original pressed CD.

Both drives returned result almost identical to those of the previous test. Once again, the Philips drive was much faster than Pioneer.

On the left are the access times for the Philips drive, which are almost the same for both read tests with pressed and CDR media.

 

 

 

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

For this test we used 24x High Speed rewritable media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.

The Philips drive also showed the same, good performance with RW media. Again, the Pioneer drive had lower speeds with this media too.
