The e-TestingLabs CD Winbench99 benchmark runs a series of scripted programs from a special CD in the drive and measures the time and data transfer capabilities as a result. Higher numbers mean better performance.

CD-WinBench 99 Benchmark Results
Test Drive Results
1. Samsung SW-240 (CD-RW) 1910 kb/s
2. Samsung SW-232 (CD-RW) 1460 kb/s
3. Samsung SW-224 (CD-RW) 1320 kb/s
4. Samsung SC-152 (CDROM) 1710 kb/s
5. Pioneer DVD-500M (DVD ROM) 2440 kb/s
6. Samsung SW-216 (CD-RW) 1280 kb/s

The SW240 performs better than previous Samsung CD-RW's (we really have to expand our reference list) and comes in just short of 2000kb/s. Interestingly, the Pioneer DVD-500M that came in with a AMD test box still manages to wipe out all competition here.
