5. CDR Tests
We did our tests with Nero v126.96.36.199 and CloneCD v188.8.131.52 software. We created a DataCD (80:01:47) and used the same media for all burns.
The Philips drive is 20 seconds faster than Lite-On at 16x writing speed.
At 24x, Philips JR24CDRW is still faster from the Lite-On drive by 13 seconds.
We used Nero 184.108.40.206 for writing in the maximum supported RW writing speed of Philips JR24CDRW. The drive finished the task in 6:47 min (12x) and the HS-RW "quick erase" task lasted just 34 seconds. LiteOn LXR-24101A supports 10x re-writing.
Packet Writing Tests
We used Ahead InCD v3.24 for the packet writing tests with Ricoh HS-RW media. The formatted disc had 534mbs 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 Windows Explorer (we dragged and dropped) and we completed the test twice to eliminate any possible time measurement faults and user errors.
Philips JR24CDRW wrote the file at 8.26x average speed, leaving the LiteOn drive second to 7.14x. Philips is also a faster reader with 16.2x.
