Benchmarks - Battery Life, Audio and Video Encoding
The Hercules eCAFE EC-1000W will be ran through the standard netbook test regime here at Tweaktown, including Battery Eater Pro, iTunes Encoding and Windows Media Encoder. The first test up is Battery Eater Pro.
Battery Eater Pro
Battery Eater Pro is very hard on batteries so you are likely to get more run time in the real world, depending on how you use the machine. For the power saving mode test I run the machine with the screen at 50% brightness and no power saving features. The performance mode test is run at the same settings, but the screen is at 100% brightness. Check out the chart below for the full results. The Hercules eCAFE EC-1000W did decently on this benchmark.
For the iTunes encoding test I take the Stone Temple Pilots Core CD in MP3 format and encode it to AAC format using iTunes and time the results with a stopwatch. The eCAFE turned in a good performance for the category. Check out the chart below for the results.
Windows Media Encoder
Version and / or Patch Used: 9

For the movie encoding test I take the HD Microsoft Magic of Flight video and encode it to DVD quality video with CD quality audio using Windows Media Encoder. The eCAFE was right where I expected a netbook with its hardware to be in this benchmark.
