To check the reading performance of BenQ with pressed CD media, we used NeroCDSpeed and a data pressed disc.

BenQ performed very well in the pressed disc reading test. The drive returned back the fastest start, end and average reading speeds. The disc was read under CAV mode, and the test confirmed and surpassed the manufacturer's specifications for 40x maximum reading speed.

Besides the fast reading speed of the BenQ drive with the tested pressed media, the above graph shows that the drive logged in very fast seek times. The drive proved to be faster than the other two drives in all three tested modes. With the full seek, the BenQ was 35ms faster than the LiteOn.
