Data CD Reading Tests
- Pressed CD results (Click for
Looking at the graph above for pressed CD media, it can be seen that the
BTC DRW1008IM was the fastest among the three drives. The final speed reached,
43.84x is quite a high reading speed, and confirms the manufacturers specifications
for 40x reading.
On the seek times test, the drive recorded good times but not the best, being
slightly slower that the Optorite DD0401.
- CD-R Media results (Click for
We next made a copy of the pressed CD used in the previous test, in order
to check the drive's behaviour with CD-R media. Once again the BTC drive performed
very well, being the fastest.
Here too, while the drive's seek times were quite good, it was again a shade
slower than the Optorite drive.
- ReWritable Media (Click for
For this reading test with ReWritable media, we used 24x High Speed rewritable
media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.
The reading speed with CD-RW media was quite good. The reported speeds place
the drive in the middle of our typical comparison, with Optorite proving to
be the fastest here.
