Pretty good result for CMC on the 209 @ 6x.
Yeah, even better than the Verbatims with same MID. I think the 209 can write this 10-12x (or 16x too? I’ve seen same crazy speeds somewhere with it), maybe I’ll try that too
CMCMAGBA5 is 12x speed max with the Pioneer, VERBATIMe is 16x (and SONY NN3 & RITEKBR4 which are basically unavailable).
good to know, thanks I think I have some SONY NN3 left, so I’ll try with those

Burned with Panasonic UJ-220 @2x
old slim type 2x writer with PATA interface from a Sony Vaio notebook
Both excellent results… Looks surprisingly like quite a good little drive.
Yes seems to be a good writer. But takes some time to finish… 2x is maximum speed.
Maybe the slow speed is the reason of the good results.
Not necessarily. I’ve had <2x writes where I didn’t disable write verify or streaming yet the results were still subpar.
I have 3 Panasonic Slim-SATA-drives which let me choose on most media 2x and 4x OR 6x
The results with some media is good but far away from your results.
I´m quite sure my Panasonics are made by QSI, but don´t know if your drive also is a QSI
I don’t know. It says ‘Made In Philippines’
My UJ273 is also made in Philippines, so it should be also a QSI.
It’s usually easiest to check the UL-file number to identify the manufacturer. UJ-273 was made by Panasonic itself:
E140407 can be searched in UL database
I’m not a total freak, but I haven’t heard of any blu-ray drives made by QSI (neither slim nor 5,25").
OK, thought Panasonic have stopped making optical drives long time ago.
And I have good experience with the reliability of Panasonic-products, but the drives in Panasonic DVD-Recorder (Standalone) were not very reliable.
My Pioneer or Sony DVD-recorders had much better drives IMHO

I´m far away
Well, from my experience write speed above 4x are not recommended for CMC on 209, 211 & 212 series drives, although I think that scan would look a bit better at 4x test speed, 8x on LiteOns seems to give more errors.
Mostly I burn 4x on BA5, maybe next time again
