Pioneer DVR-S706-J

4. DVD reading tests

PIONEER DVR-S706 DVD±R/RW recorder - Page 4

DVD reading tests

- Single Layer DVD-ROM (Click for CDSpeed results)

The transfer rates and seek times are more or less the same. Full stroke seek time is a little higher compared with other DVD recorders..

- Dual Layer PTP DVD-ROM (Click for CDSpeed results)

The two layers of a PTP DVD-ROM disc are read sequentially with the drive starting the read process from the inner tracks on the disc, which is the beginning of each layer and progressing outwards towards to the outer tracks for each layer.

The DVD dual layer speed results reach a high level. The seek times still are good.

- Dual Layer OTP DVD-ROM

The first layer of an OTP dual layer DVD-ROM is read exactly the same way as the first layer of the PTP disc we tested previously. The difference here is the reading strategy of the disc's second layer. The beginning of the second layer is located in the outer part of the disc, so the drive starts reading from the outer tracks inwards towards the inner tracks of the disc.

As can been seen from the following screenshot, the OTP dual layer DVD test disc had the same speed as the PTP. The seek times are at about the same levels.

- DVD Ripping Tests

We measured the DVD-Video ripping speed of the Pioneer drive using the latest version of DVD Decrypter. The DVD Video title is the "Matrix" pressed DVD-Video.

Here DVR-S706 drive was slower than DVR-107D. The reported 3041 kb/s is an average transfer rate. This happens because of the different firmware between two drives.

- DVD Recordable / Rewritable reading Tests

The chart below shows the Nero CDSpeed average reading speed results with the following media:

- DVD RAM reading test

CD Speed reports CLV read mode with DVD-RAM media. The disc we used for this test is a Panasonic DVD-RAM 4.7GB Single Sided Type 2 rewritable media. Disc was read at 2x speed and full seek time was increased.
