Data CD Reading Tests
- Pressed CD (Click for
In the pressed CD reading test, LiteOn SOHC 5232K brought marginally equal
results with the Freecom FC-1 drive except the starting speed where SOHC
started the reading at a higher speed. With a final speed of 53,43x, the LiteOn
overreach the manufacturers specifications for
LiteOn was somewhat slower that the Freecom recorder in the seek time
seek where SOHC needed 177ms. But despite the fact that SOHC was slower
than FC, 177ms is a good score for a combo drive.
- CD-R (Click for
We made a copy of the previous pressed CD in order to test the drive's behavior
with a CD-R media. Both drives' resulting speeds are similar and this proves
the drives' stability. This time Freecom had higher speed at the end of reading.
Here too, the seek times are almost identical in contrast with the original
media test. Again the LiteOn drive returned a quite slow
full seek time.
- ReWritable Media (Click for
For the reading test
we used 32x High Speed rewritable media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.
Both LiteOn and Freecom drives support 52x32x52 speeds. However they had different
speed in CD-RW media reading. So, as it can been seen from the graph above,
LiteOn was faster than Freecom, since the speed was 40x for SOHC and 32 for
