all right, it's kinda like my first post.
Just got my 1620($50) and 100 Legacy 8X DVD-Rs ($30) from newegg two days ago. I am using an external exclosure. Bytecc ME320. connecting to my Dell 600M via a USB2.0 hub. I don't know why I can't do the disc quality test. So I'll just give you a basic idea how this media is.
DVD 1:1 Copy:
Movie: Garden State
software: DVD shrink
Time: 32 minutes (ripping + burning) w/o speedpatch
After SpeedPatch (a little bit more than 7minutes ripping)
Quality: Played flawlessly on my PS2 version 10.
Name: NFL Street v2, Splinter Cell, FIFA street, NFS Underground 2, Prince of persia 2.
Software: RecordNow!!!! I tried Nero too, but only 1 out of 2 discs were playable.
Quality: Played flawlessly on my PS2 v10 with Messiah 2.0pro Modchip.
Well, all I can say is 1620+Legacy are amazing. I don't know what quality scores I would get, but since everything worked out well, I really don't care about it anymore.
Drawback: Recording time using RecordNow is longer than Nero. CD Quality test doesn't work.
Now, I am using Nero to burn Data files(the fastest speed), DVD shrink to burn movies and RecordNow to burn PS2 and PC games. This is the best combination I could get. (Threw in 10 Discs for testing softwares, LOL).
all right, hopefully it's gonna be useful for someone
:rolleyes: enjoy 1620!!
