RW Writing Tests
We used Nero 188.8.131.52 for writing CDs at the maximum RW speed for all the tested drives. The Mitsumi CR-480ATE supports not only 10x but also 12x re-writing speed, making it the faster re-writer at this category:
The Mitsumi CR-480ATE needs only 408secs to end the task. With 10x RW speed the drive needs 487sec. The CPU Usage is low and the erase time is under 60secs.
- Packet Writing Tests
We used Ahead InCD v3.14 for all Packet Writing tests with a Mitsubishi Chemicals HS-RW media. The formatted disc had 534mbs of free space.

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE has an 8.81X max packet-writing performance. The average reading speed (11.87X) should be considered low, compared to what Yamaha CRW3200E offers...
