The 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.

The LG GSA-4082B comes in last in the CD Winbench 99 tests, definitely not a good way to start the benchmarks. We expected a bit more from the drive let's see how it fairs in the other benchmarks.

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Here the LG GSA-4082B performs quite a bit slower than the rest of the drives. The drive Access Time is high, and data transfer is a bit on the low side according to Sandra, but since this is a 32X drive going up against 52X CD readers, it isn't all that surprising.
