yeah… looking at my scan records, PIE max on verbatim for me are always under 20, most of the time under 12.
on my benq’s i know for sure i usually get these kind of results. the pioneer and the samsung i would have to try again benq burns this media better, but i am anticipating higher jitter
i get them for just under $20 for a pack of 100 and verbatim, $18 for 50. i usually get one of each. i also get sony D21 +r 100 pack when it’s on sale for $25.
surely, for critical data i use verbatim MCC-003/004. for everything else i use mostly sony D21 +r and dynex RITEK-G05 +r. some data i won’t miss if they disappear one day.
the only dynex i have with fake verbatim code is the 16x -r 100 pack that was 5.99 on black friday. my friends get these because they look and feel like they will deteriorate soon.
