CD-RW Read Speeds
This test used a backup copy of the original CD on a Liteon HS-RW disc (4x-12x):
- ATIP: 97m 15s 35f
- Disc Manufacturer: NAN-YA Plastics Corp.
- Reflective layer: Phase change
- Media type: CD-ReWritable
- Recording Speeds: min. unknown - max. unknown
- Nominal Capacity: 702.83 MB (79m 59s 74f / LBA: 359849)
This is where the unit really showed what it was made of. Measuring very close to 41x, with seek times better than 100ms, this is definitely one of the top current performers in this particular discipline.
