Datawrite MCC003 vs. Datasafe MCC003

#1

Just got some Datawrite discs to test. I like a lot. They are even better than the Datasafe MCC003 :iagree:

I included a Kprobe scan with forced 4x on a 166S. Even though I know it’s not a reliable scan it does give some indication and I was curious anyhow. I will have to get me a Benq later on methinks :wink:

OK here is the Datasafe scan I provided in an earlier thread for comparison. I also added a Kprobe scan again just out of curiosity and as a way to compare the two brands.

I removed a few high single spikes to make it easier to read the figures btw.

I’d like to compare it to some Verbatim MCC003’s but I don’t have any and not buying any at present. I need that Benq drive for proper testing though! Pretty please with a cherry on top. Buy me one for a present hehe. :bow:

Just kidding (Yeah right!). :bigsmile:

I also have some Datawrite CMC MAG AE1 DVD-R’s to hand. I would not trust my data to these. Burned at 8x on NEC2500 with Quickee F8 B3.

That’s no surprise. I would take MCC over CMC any day of the week. That is interesting though that you burned those discs on the NEC as CMC are supposed to get along quite well with NEC burners.


#4

It might be just that disc as I took it from the top of the spindle and I know you are supposed to take a disc from further down to be fair (Although discs SHOULD be similar quality from the top of the spindle to the bottom but you know how it goes).

I will try one from another pack later on (The one I burned was a weird dark purply labelled disc but I have another untested pile with yellow tops).


#5

No arguments there. Even though there are crazy in-store special offers here in the US, I have had the worst possible luck with re-labeles (ie Fuji TY discs). Anyways, the top discs all had spotting around the edges of the discs, fingerprint smudges, ect. However whenever I order the actual TY discs online I get solid dye from the very top to the very bottom of the spindle.
