The article mentioned above is the feature article on "Disc Rot" in the latest issue of APC Magazine. Why are they using old media in their CATS tests? Modern media widely available in Australia such as Imation 52x/TDK Gold 52x (CMC), Verbatim DLP 52x (MCC), TDK White Printable 52x (TY), TDK 52x (Ritek), LG 52x (Prodisc), and Plasmon-coded discs (e.g. Strathfield, 1MEDIA, etc.) should have been used to give the customer a good idea about the quality of discs that they see on a daily basis. A good review would also breifly inform the user about C1/C2/CU error testing using supported drives.
There's nothing like a review done by an enthusiast for the benefit of others, not just to himself/herself and the company or companies that support him/her.
