I started discussing this with DrageMester in the NEC forum.
I found a nice deal for photo printable Verbatim Super Azo CDRs, so I decided to give them a go and bought 2 50-discs spindles.
I can generally easily get very low and even jitter around 7-7,8% out of most CDRs in my NECs (3540, 4550) and LG H22N. I just can’t achieve this with these discs. Tried lower burning speeds without any change. C1 are also higher than expected.
DrageMester suggested me to try my 1650 with f/w BCIC, which didn’t turn out better, actually slightly worse (sorry Drage ). Didn’t try any other speed than @16X, though.
Oh, well. These are not awful results either, just not the “holy grail” I came to expect from quality CDRs. And I still have my huge stock of good old TY.
I think that from now on, I’ll stick with consistently works for me, I’m getting tired of all these experiments over the last 2 years. My DVDRs will be MCC004 and my CDRs TY, period, case closed.
1. An example of what I’m expecting from a top-notch CDR burn in terms of jitter
2. MII 97m34s23f Verbatim @32X in Nec 3540A
3. MII 97m34s23f Verbatim @32X in LG H22N (best result)
4. MII 97m34s23f Verbatim @16X in Benq 1650
