DVD reading tests
- Test Method
We used Nero DVD Speed to run DVD tests. All tests were performed at least 3 times with the same DVD title (we show the average results). The tests discs were one single sided, single layer DVD-ROM, one single sided, dual layer DVD-ROM, and DVD-R,-RW, +R and DVD+RW media.
- Single Layer DVD-ROM reading: (Click for DVDSpeed results)
INcoder TS24C-C1 supports 8X CAV maximum reading speed for the DVD format. The drive reached the 8.19X reading speed by the end of the task, and gave an average speed of 6.10X. The Plextor drive is slightly slower with 5.96X.
The seek times of TS24C-C1 are very good. The random seek test gave an 93 msec result, and the Full seek around 207 msec. The Plextor drive seems to be slower..
- Dual Layer DVD-ROM reading: (Click for DVDSpeed results)
The drive supports 8X CAV reading speed for the dual layer DVD-ROM discs. The average reading speed for each layer is 6.09X, and is almost twice as fast as the Plextor drive..
The seek times for the dual layer DVD-ROMs are the same as in the previous test.
- DVD Ripping Tests
We measured the DVD Ripping speed using the "Matrix" DVD Video title and DVD Decrypter v3.0 software.
The ripping speed of INcoder TS24C-C1 is high, resulting to an average speed of 4628 kb/s. The Plextor drive is slower with 3986 kb/s.
- DVD reading Tests
The charts below shows the Nero DVD Speed results with the following media.
The INcoder TS24C-C1 read all the inserted discs at 3X average, except from the DVD+R, where it was faster (6.11X). The Plextor drive follows with a very close performance.
