RW Writing Tests
We used Nero 18.104.22.168 for writing CDs in maximum RW writing speed for all the tested drives in 10x HS-RW media. All drive support fully the HS-RW writing standard:
As we can see, the Sanyo CRD-BP1500P gave back the exact same writing time as the other Sanyo drives do. The PleXWriter PX-W1610A seems slightly faster (4 secs) from all the Sanyo drives. The erase time seems higher than from other Sanyo models.
- Packet Writing Tests
We used Ahead InCD v2.11 for all Packet Writing tests. We used Ricoh HS RW media and we formatted it. The formatting of the media takes around 10min. After formatting, we tested all four drives for their packet writing performance.
The formatted disc had 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) we completed the test twice to eliminate possible time measurement faults and user error:
The results shows that the Sanyo CRD-BP1500P is improved over the previous models, since it now has around 6.8x reading/writing packet formated HS-RW media. The PleXWriter PX-W1610A still holds the first place in terms of absolute performance...
