Benchmarks: CD Winbench 99, SiSoft Sandra

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.

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.

Overall performance of the AOpen CRW5232/ARR 52x32x52x CD-RW is very good, the only thing that stands out is the rather long access time compared to the competition. When in use the AOpen drive certainly did not feel like it took any longer to use than other optical devices.
