RW Writing Tests
We used Nero 220.127.116.11 for writing CDs in maximum RW writing speed for all the tested drives in 10x HS-RW media. All drives support fully the HS-RW writing standard. We did notice problems with Verbatim's HS-RW media since the drive refused to write at 10x speed producing severe write errors. For our tests we used Ricoh's 10x HS-RW media:
The AOpen CRW2440 performed very well and it was slower by only one second from the PleXWriter PX-W2410A. The CPU Usage is also low and the erase time did not exceed 60 secs.
- Packet Writing
We used Ahead InCD v2.32 for the Packet Writing tests. We used TDK HS-RW media and we formatted it. The formatted disc revealed 530mbs of free space. We copied a 403 MB file (403.147 kbs) from a Hard Disk (on the same PC as the writers) to the formatted RW media-using explorer (we dragged and dropped) and we completed the test twice to eliminate possible time measurement faults and user errors:
The AOpen CRW2440A can compete against the other drives and win by a noticeable difference in the reading part. The drive has 7.25X average writing speed and 20.09X average reading speed! It is simply the faster 24x recorder you can buy nowadays for packet writing use.
