Original CDFreaks review after a long long time. :slight_smile:

nice… but it feels like cd-rw drives iis a thing of the past now… i would like to se some reviews on dvd+r dvd-r and dvd±r drives… i mean sure new think like 24x cdrw is a nice addition… well just a thought… nice review as always though :slight_smile:

The Plextor PX-504A (DVD+R) is going to be my next review!

What typ of the Mitsui/MAM-E discs was used in the test? I can´t believe of a bad burn like this with a TEAC burner. Maybe it was of the SG Ultra typ as I have heard of a not so good quality with this media. For me only gold discs ATIP 97 17 55 + 97 17 56 are real Mitsuis.

Manufacturer: Mitsui Code: 97m27s58f Disc Type: CD-R Usage: General Recording Layer: Dye Type 8: Short Strategy (Phthalocyanine) Capacity: 79:59.74 703 MB 48x certified, burned at 48x

We have removed a couple of tests, because they took much time and were only of intrest to a limited amount of people. Scratched disc tests are one of them.

Nice review GF! Now wait, if you uploaded now the TEAC CD-W552 review, maybe there is still time for me to upload the Mitsumi review too … i guess its never too late :wink:

looking forward to it gamefreak nice =)

>only of intrest to a limited amount of people. Scratched disc tests are one of them. I don’t see why lack of requests would suggest that few are interested in scratched disc tests. I consier the scratched disks test to be a basic functionality test much like “does the drive power up?” “does the tray move?” “does it spin?”. People don’t ask for things to be functional, they expect it.
