CD WinBench 99

As usual, we tested the drives in CD WinBench 99 using a molded CD-ROM and its copies made on a CD-R and a CD-RW.

As you can see on the data-transfer diagrams, the Plextor PX-130A is the only drive to have problems reading the final section of the CD-ROM. Moreover, this drive is also very slow with the CD-R while the other drives deliver their maximum performance with that disc. This is all reflected in the overall performance score – the Plextor has the lowest score in the CD-R test. The best performance with all three discs is provided by the Sony DDU1622 which is a little faster than the Sony DDU1615.

The drives met their specified access time parameters, excepting the Plextor PX-130A which has a higher access time than the specified 90 milliseconds with CD-ROM and CD-RW media, but it must be due to the troubles the drive experiences as it tries to read our particular discs.
