Packet Writing Speed

Ricoh 7060S 3 Minutes 51 Seconds
Yamaha 6416SZ 3 Minutes 49 Seconds

Not a lot of difference in the packet writing speed between the two drives. You will never notice a difference of two seconds in a real world situation. Now, let's take a look at the writing speed of the two drives.

CD to CD Copy Speed

Ricoh 7060S 10 Minutes 42 Seconds
Yamaha 6416SZ 13 Minutes

For the CD to CD copy speed benchmark we used Quadrat's WinonCD recording software. Again we see the Ricoh drive pull ahead in the CD burning tests. The Yamaha is considerably slower taking a full 2 minutes 18 secs longer to burn a 635 MB disc on the fly.


Not a lot to say in this situation. I think the benchmarks speak for themselves. The Ricoh burner is clearly the overall winner taking first place in just about every single category. Some people may argue that the Ricoh's speed advantage can be attributed to its 24x read speed vs. Yamaha's 16x read speed. This is true when it comes to the Sandra 99 benchmark, but it's tough to argue with the fact the Ricoh takes a considerable lead over the Yamaha in the CD writing department even when both drives are rated as 6x writers. After all, isn't that the whole point of a CD writer?

One last thing I would like to mention so my mailbox doesn't become full of flame mail is that we did this comparison solely concentrating on the drives. We didn't take into consideration any bundled items including the CD recording software. We look at both of these drives as OEM drive only units. Besides both of these drives came with different CD recording software, and we decided to test both drives utilizing the same software for the sake of accuracy.
