The Jitter are superb but the beta are badly. Of the write-side are many rings. The write strategie is bad at dw1640@BEGB.
The laserpower are not good adjusted.

This is from a new batch. The Verbatim box design has now changed. I burnt the same disk 4 times and the resultant scan is the best on offer, although all burns exhibited the same pattern(spike at end).

These Nexperia burners are just great. :clap: My (second) DW1640 is still up and running in our HTPC box, nowdays mostly as a DVD player. :slight_smile:

MID: [B]CMC MAG AM3[/B] (Memorex branded)

Pre-burn calibration: 12’'
Drive/Firmware: BenQ DW1640/[B]BSRB[/B]_stock

Don’t know whom to trust, senior members telling me Lite-On is a great scanner. Would you agree? (Per ECMA difinition this is an unreadable disc, but movie still plays well on all my standalones.)
[I]Note,[/I] scans done on my $ntel 865PE C2D burning rig.
:wink:

Unfortunately all the media @ 175-250MB with these PIE-Peak :frowning:
It is a 10-pack Verbatim Photo Printable in jewel-case.

The rest of these burn are very good for such an old 1640.

After a lot damn good results here now some damn bad ones! Don’t know if I should open a new topic, so i give it a first try here 'cause of some interesting screens, potentially.

Wanted to know how well a Philips DVD+R (INFOME R30) does work with my BenQ DW1640 (BSGB) compared to the Verbatim DVD+R (MCC 004), which I usually use.

  1. try with a Philips DVD+R (INFOME R30) and Nero CDSpeed Create Disc:

  2. Philips DVD+R (INFOME R30) and Nero 8 Express with 23 proper avi-files:

  3. Verbatim DVD+R (MCC 004) and Nero 8 Express with the same 23 proper avi-files:

Unfortunately I do not have any more Verbatim DVD+R (only Verbatim DVD-R and Philips DVD+R), so further testing might has to wait till next week.
But maybe you can give a first statement on these screens.
Don’t know if my Burner is broken and what the Verbatim result means (to my other already burned Verbatims). Thanks for help!

greets D4rk

EDIT: I will test some other Verbatims which I burned some days ago, also only proper avi-files. However, I can’t burn any Verbatim DVD+Rs like I said before.

Announced screens of some other Verbatims DVD+R of this week, all burned at the same day with Nero8.

several avi-files:

I was having some issues burning some Infiniti 16x DVD-R. I was getting spikes on scans and higher than usual PIF count. They were between 600-1000 which is not bad but not great either. Quality scores of 94% were less than I was used to. So I decided to burn them using Solid Burn. This is the 3rd disc burned at 12x :iagree:

I would post a benchmark but I have another issue I need to figure out which I will be posting elsewhere.

Firing up my more then 2 years old 1640. :slight_smile:

MID: [B]RiTEKF1[/B] (TDK branded)
Type: DVD-R 16x rated
Burned with: CD Speed 4.7.7.15 Create disc
Burned 16x
Burn time: 6’ 21’‘
Write Strategy; default
Pre-burn calibration: 21’'
Drive/Firmware: DW1640 /BSRB_stock

[I]Compare[/I] this burn with one made on Pioneer 115

Although PIE’s are rather high past 3GB none of 4 tested burners had problem to run a clean 16x transfer rate test. :wink:
Max of 270 PIE’s just in theory?
