I've only burnt a couple of full capacity DVDs, and have noticed that, if I burn my TYG02's at their rated speed (8x), the reported burn speed from DVD Decrypter fluctuates between 6x and 8x. In comparison, my Pioneer 107D burns constantly at 8x on the same media. My BenQ came shipped with the BSHB firmware.
The BenQ is on the secondary primary IDE channel, HDDs are on the other IDE channel, so there shouldn't be a bandwidth problem whilst burning.
The TYG02's are genuine with 99 quality score most of the time with the Pioneer 107D.
Also WOPC is disabled.
Is this speed fluctuation normal?
