Every now and again you run into a disk that is just odd. This one is the very top disk from a spindle of Verbatim MCC-004, old style packaging, PAP6 serial code. The disk was flawless, no scratches, no dust, no fingerprints. The PIE and PIF levels are ten times worse than any other disks from the spindle that I've tried so far.
Burned at 8x on a Pioneer 215L. Scanned the disk on both a BenQ 1620 and Samsung 203B. The scans are very similar, though the error levels are higher on this Samsung scan.
