I guess 4x only means a standard write-strategy, not specific for this media. Pioneer is maybe the only manufacturer which also have write-strategies for very old media in the Firmware of BD-writers. The competitors don´t have such things in the writers of last ten years

The question remains if having old writing strategies with new drives gives any benefit. The other CMC MAG F01 disc I have burned recently was on Pioneer DVR-116D @4x, but the scans were more ugly (especially on BenQ).

But the 116D is maybe more used and the older drive? Never had a x16-drive, but x15 were good and x17 awfuk with most -R media.

I think some 4x-media could be very good with a standard-strategy, but some not

Older media?

The M01 I bought in last years is far away from this quality

Yes, an older 10 discs pack.
This was the last disc in the spindle, but all of them had this quality.
