I'm looking for some baseline rip times people are getting from various burners/rom drives.
I've conducted a few tests of my own, using the 'Clone mode'
Clone mode involves no transcoding so the impact of the speed of the PC should be minimal.
For my tests, I used the move GalaxyQuest - I think it's about a 2 hr movie.
All tests are DVDFab 188.8.131.52 clone mode, all checkboxes cleared to an ISO file.
11m24sec - Nec 3550(ide) - intel P4 2.4 - xp - 2gigs ram, i865 chipset
21m03s - Samsung 203N(sata) - intel Q9450 2.66 - vista - 2gigs ram, iP45 chipset
21m45s - Emprex 8x (ide) - AMD x2 4800 2.5ghz - srv2008, 8gig, amd600 chipset
it would really help me if anyone could post numbers - even rough estimates - it seems to me that the numbers I am getting from the samsung are too slow, some confirmation of that would help!
