2. Data CD Reading Tests

Data CD Reading Tests

Below you can see the behavior of the drive while reading various CD media types. In the first case we use a pressed disc and in the second a copy of the pressed CD. Lastly we examine US-RW media.

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

The reading speeds for start, average and end speeds for the Artec drive were the fastest among the three drives. However, its seek times were the slowest and quite a bit slower than the Optorite DD0401 which had the best seek times overall.

- CD-R Media results (Click for CDSpeed results)

Here again, the Artec drive exhibits the fastest reading speeds, but is second to the Optorite with seek times. Interestingly, the Artec and Optorite drives display marginally better seek times with the copy CD than they do with the original, pressed disc.

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

As with the previous media types, so with HS-RW media the drive reported the fastest reading speeds, but we feel that overall, the seek times could be better.
