[QUOTE=Dee-27;2123323]That is an excellent question IMO.
Here on CDF we are very fussy, perhaps to fussy about a drive and we sometimes lose objectivity.
Let’s first look at the facts.
Apart from one disc (the overburned CD-R) all the discs in the review and, all the discs i burned were readable in the (read back drives). Some of the burned discs when read back caused the reading drive to slow down (not a good sign) but technically the discs were readable. How long they will remain readable is unclear. So therefore, this drive technically, is not a bad drive. It certainly doesn’t create quality burns like most of us would like, but that alone does not make a drive bad.
Most people who buy this drive will never run a Disc Quality Scan, so providing the discs that this drive burns are readable on the target drive. Most people will be happy.
Personally, i would not trust a CD-R that has C2 errors, or DVD+R/-R with such high PIE/PIF errors and Jitter. But technically, as far as the tests run in this review are concerned, most of the discs burned were within specification.[/QUOTE]
I guess you’re right.
But the people who buy this drive will sure start complaining when their TY CD-Rs dont play in most Audio Players, especially not in Car ones
