Discs are sold as Samsung cakebox 25 pieces.

Burnt at 2.4x with the LiteOn 832S, read back with maximum read-speed.

Nice, very nice result. Also notice the disc defect (also visible in previous scans) which causes the high PI/PO spike in the middle!


Here is BeAll DVD+R 16x media

I bought and burned a spindle of 50 BeAll 4x on my NEC 2510A about a year ago. About 20 of the disks are no longer readable.

I wonder if the 16x disks improve the quality, not that I’ll ever buy BeAll again.

I doubt I will buy any again either. I just wanted to test out some 16x media and got them for a fair price.

If I remember next year I will scan it again.

For what it’s worth, thanks for testing these. I would think if one burner could get a good burn on something, the LG would. The PIE looked good, but the PIF…ugh! Thanks for your test, b/c you saved me from making a $$$ mistake. :iagree:
