Data CD Reading Tests
Below you can see the behavior of the drive while reading various CD
media types. In the first case we use a pressed disc and in the second a
copy of the pressed CD. Lastly we examine US-RW
- Pressed CD results (Click for
The reading speeds for start, average and end speeds for the
Artec drive were the
fastest among the three drives. However, its seek times were the slowest and
quite a bit slower than the Optorite DD0401 which had the best
seek times overall.
- CD-R Media results (Click for
Here again, the Artec drive exhibits the fastest reading speeds,
but is second to the Optorite with seek times. Interestingly, the Artec and
Optorite drives display marginally better seek times with the copy CD than
they do with the original, pressed disc.
- ReWritable Media (Click for
As with the previous media types, so with HS-RW media the drive reported the
fastest reading speeds, but we feel that overall, the seek
times could be better.
