Nero CD-DVD Speed: Basic Tests

I had some problems testing the drive’s Blu-ray capability since I had only one Blu-ray disc, but considering the fundamental difference between BD and DVD formats I decided to show their results separately.

So I first tested the drive with DVD media. I used a total of seven discs to produce a full picture of performance. Those were a DVD-ROM with a movie and six discs with data (Sony DVD-R 16x, TDK DVD-RW 6x, Verbatim DVD+R 16x, Philips DVD+RW 8x, RIDATA DVD+R DL 2.4x, Verbatim DVD-R DL 4x). Below you can see links to the corresponding data-transfer diagram. Following the other links you can see a photo of the disc and find out its actual manufacturer.

The read speed diagrams suggest that the BDR-101ABK handles DVDs no worse than a regular DVD drive does. It had a problem reading the DVD-RW, but I guess that was just a case of poor compatibility with the particular disc.

The resulting diagrams show that the max read speed is slightly higher than 8x. The measured DVD-ROM access time is somewhat bigger than specified by the manufacturer.
