Teac DV-W58G

2. Data CD Reading Tests

TEAC DV-W58G - Page 2

Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

The TEAC DV-W58G supports 40x maximum reading speed with CD media and proved the fastest among the three drives, although there was very little between them, with a maximum final speed of 41.84x. The reading strategy of the TEAC drive is CAV.

As the seek times tests show, again there is not a lot between the drives but the TEAC drive was the slowest with all three seek times. However, the seek times are fast enough and the results are quite acceptable. The drive finished the full seek with 191ms, while 92ms was needed for the random seek.

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

With CD-R media, the TEAC DV-W58G managed to reach a maximum end speed of 41.74x, a result that is again marginally higher than the other two drives used in this comparison. The reported average speed was 31.44x

On this test we measured the seek times of the TEAC drive with CD-R media. The seek times for this test are slightly up in comparison with the previous pressed disc test. The full seek finished after 210ms for both TEAC and Pacific Digital while the Sony was fastest at 151ms.

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

To check the reading performance for the TEAC DV-W58G with HS-RW media, we used NeroCDSpeed and a HSRW rewritable disc from Mitsubishi Chemicals. After the end of the test, NeroCDSpeed reports that the drive read the disc under CAV mode with an average speed of 25.23x. The drive was the slowest among the three drives, with a final reading speed of 33.45x compared to SONY's 40.69x, however the TEAC has a maximum reading speed of 32x with CD-RW media.
