Hitachi Maxell

Looks like you’re right. I scanned it on my AD-7200S, and the spikes look almost identical to when it was scanned on the BenQ.

I thnk I’ll run a couple of more tests… I’ve narrowed it down to Plextor, but I want to see if I can get a better result with a later Plextor drive like the 52x or the Premium.

Two more drives that have produced poor results with Hitachi Maxell:

  1. Plextor PX-W5224A - Coaster
  2. Optiarc AD-7200S - Very high C1

I have no Yamaha or Ricoh drives yet (I may have had them but thrown them out at some point). These two discs were also a lucky purchase (after using my last two discs) and I have no more of these to test.
