Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD (Click for CDSpeed results)

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 drive overreach the manufacturers specifications for 52x reading.

LiteOn was somewhat slower that the Freecom recorder in the seek time test, especially in the full 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 CDSpeed results)

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 CDSpeed results)

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 FC-1.
