I just received my Plextor Premium, and I must say I am impressed sofar.
As far as the Giga-Rec goes, as an experiment, I burned @(1.4x rate) 1040MB onto a 650MB disk and a (1.3x rate) 967MB(audio cda). I had no problems with my Plex 4824a and 1610a playing it. My liteon 163D had no problems either. :bigsmile:
I then put the 1.4 disk in my Sony SACD player It was having a tuff time reading the toc. (not really surprised) :rolleyes:
I then placed the 1.3x cd in. It was able to read the cd-text and play the cd with NO Problems. :bigsmile:
I then thought why not try my Blaupunkt stereo in the car. 1st I inserted the 1.4x disk, after a few second's it played. However, it sounded like there was some static in the music. Also if you searched or skip a song, then it had trouble re-syncing.
I then put the 1.3x cd in. It played with no problems and was able to search, skip etc... and no sync issues. What a surprise! I don't have any 80min or 90min cd's at the moment, so I couldn't try that.
As far a the Sanyo HD format concerned I thought I read somewhere that it created pits and lands that were out of spec with the orange book standards, However Plextor just are in the orange book standards, thus making it far more compatable with other players. :bigsmile:
Hemispasm stated... So what would be its purpose of being?
It was so they could say " We were there first.....ahh, compatability? not sure what you mean.":eek:
