Hi jadburner,

Some very nice burns to start with. Do you happen to have some ritek/aml/CMC media to test the drive? It would be nice to see how it handles lower quality media.

Thanks, vroom. Yes, I have several lesser quality media; I’ll be posting results from those over the next few days. Thanks for asking.

Thank you for the quick reply, I’ll be waiting for this tests.

Very interesting results. The only acceptable burn speed for this media is 16x, not bad, also your 1650 doesnt seem to like the burns that the ASUS drive is producing.

Yes, 16x looked reasonable, as did the 8x burn (except for the DW1650 scan). PIE and PIF totals are too high on all burns for my liking, though. My 1650 is picky about a lot of burns; I include its results for completeness. My 1655 was a little better before it died.

Nothing wrong with a picky drive :wink:
