Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

According to the specifications, the Freecom FC-1 supports a maximum reading speed of 52x. Our tests confirmed this and moreover the drive reached a final speed of 53.64x, which was the highest in our comparison. The reported average speed was at 40.43x.

For all seek times the Freecom drive returned good times where it was only slightly slower than the Plextor Premium for 1/3 and full seeks, but had the fastest random seek time at 85ms.

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

In this reading test, the Freecom drive was again the fastest among the three drives. Notice that the final speed reached was 54.18x, which is a high speed. However the average speed was the same for all drives.

As in the previous test with the pressed CD, the Freecom drive once again had low seek times although not as good as the Plextor Premium.

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

For this test we used 32x High Speed rewritable media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.

Due to the Freecom drive's specified 32x US-RW reading speed, it was only logical that the drive would be slower than the other two which support 52x.
