I have both drives now installed. i have recently bought two sample packs of dvd media from www.accaproducts.com and will post in this thread the scans of identical media on each drive at equal speed settings.
each media will have its media code plus ill include the part no. of the product from accaproducts.
firmware im using on the NEC 2500A is Hacked herries 107 beta 7
firmware on the Benq 822W is stock (since this is such a new product).
speeds will be at maximum allowed for media by fw.
No MCC or Tayio Yuden media came with these packs so it will be mostly under 1$ media.
I will also use some other media i have on hand…some cheap media and some good media for comparisons…(ie cheap CMC 2x and excellent verbatim datalifeplus MCC 8x).
remember this is not a clinical study just a comparison between two simular media on two drives. Also remember that im using the shipping version of Benqs fw and the hacked version of the 2500s…though if you bought these drives im sure you would be using the same…ie real world comparisons.
if you have questions on specific test results reply to the relevent test post.
