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
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
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
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
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
- 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
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.

The chart below shows the Nero CDSpeed average reading speed results with
the following media:
- DVD RAM reading test
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.
