Sorry to the daxon lovers here but I am not enjoying this media at all anymore.
I have burnt about 40 of them. Some had big PI clumps in one singular spot, however some did not, here’s some of my results: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=96409&page=2
I’ve been using them as giveaways to friends. All discs were burnt with DVD-ROM booktype. I also used 4 different writers. LG H22N & 4167B, Pioneer 111L and LiteonLH18A1P. The problem lies with their standalone compatibility.
I gave out discs to multiple different people. About 4 so far have reported that the discs won’t work in their DVD player. Some skip, some don’t play at all. I have not just given one disc to each person, we’re talking 2 or more discs per person at a time, most of the time the discs were burnt at different speeds and in different burners but still failed on my friends standalone players. Some discs worked alright, but it was a very “hit and miss” situation.
You can go ahead and say that their DVD players don’t like +R media but you’d be very wrong as all of these people have reported my MCC003 and 004 have worked brilliant. You could also say the PI clumps caused the discs not to work, I will answer with: Why have the discs without the PI clumps, low PI/PIF, good jitter levels, perfect TRT tests also failed?
I definitely would not recommend Daxon AZ3 for video. Data seems alright though.
This is another example of how media can look fine in PI/PIF tests and even TRT but still fail in standalones.
Feel free to disagree with me about daxon media, it works well on all my standalone players however, on my friends it has proved to be a difficult media whereas verbatim has not.
