[QUOTE=Cressida;2031378]Here’s how my simple mind sees it:
-MediaTek chipset LiteOn’s report PIF per 1 ECC block (ECC stands for Error Correcting Code if you want to google). Maximum allowed PIF value is 4, which corresponds with a 95% score in CDSpeed for LiteOn scans.
- Nexperia chipset BenQ’s report PIF per 8 ECC blocks, so in a worst case scenario you could say you can have a max. of (8 x 4) = 32 PIF in those 8 blocks. This would represent a bad PIF “cluster” however and in practice a max. PIF value of 8 corresponds with a 95% score in CDSpeed for BenQ scans.
This doesn’t apply to PIE (max. allowed value is 280 in both cases), but you’ll still see differences between the two drive types, just because they’re different drive types ;).[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the reply, very helpful, so a Benq can have up to 32 Pif, the reason I asked was I recently got a Benq 1620, and the burns have been very good according to this info, my PIF’s have been about 11 -15.
