I got my BenQ DW1620 today!
and that’s mainly because I am not happy with my Pioneer DVR-108.
It is a good burner but somewhat picky: I have problems with some media… and not only cheap one!
I am a “bootleg” DVD video trader and I get lots of very different media in so-called B&P (blanks and postage) trades, so I need a device capable of burning different discs.
My very first test is to burn Ritek/Ridata 8x RITEKG05 DVD-Rs (my Pioneer’s favorite!) at 4x.
Why at 4x? Because I often burn on-the-fly, and the DVD-ROM I use (a LiteOn) cannot reading faster than 4x at the beginning, yo I must stuck with 4.
BTW, BenQ reports far less (50%) PI/PIFs than my LiteOn DVD-ROM.
1st is Pioneer, 2nd is BenQ, and Pioneer seems to be better with RITEKG05@4x, so 1:0 for Pioneer
