I was just looking for the best drive and it turned out to be better.
They all are supposes to do the same job. There is one that i discovered is the best at everything.
The best DRIVE
You have know idea the kind of testing i have done so don't lecture me, i will give you a tastes
Endurance and constancy testing :checks for cheep sloppy internals
IDE I/O DAM, Multitasking testing : test performance and data integrity
Reading and installing of programs from various pressed disc: tests speed handling of I/O and DMA function.
Testing all operations start to finish with stop watch with varying media and pressed discs: Tests speed.
Being able scanning the troublesome movies that i test duplicated form the forms: Allows you to backup any movie to date.
Test reading or scanning scratched, dirty,corrupted data:Test error correction, if it is to strong you wont be able to scan the troublesome movies. If it is set to liberal you will have incorrect data when approximation hits calculation.
The best drive is almost perfect at this balance i could not believe it my self.
I'm vary proud of this test it was vary vary hard to construct, but to cool to see.
Media testing HIGH QUALITY and LOW QUALITY : Test ACCURACY of a drive and FIRMWARE, i received bonus best drive adjusted on the fly
You have to know how a drive works to understand. It's a optical laser on a track, a spiral record on spindle with bearings. It can get out whack easy with cheep quality parts.
The sharper the edge of the bun the more easily readable it is.
What makes a sharp edge? a good drive
Media what make it HIGH QUALITY AND LOW QUALITY
HIGH QUALITY When being lased it leaves a sharp edge with the dye
High quality drive, high quality media= best burn
Low quality drive, high quality media= OK burn
Low quality drive, and low quality media= coaster
High quality drive, and low quality media= OK burn
Well one drive to my surprise passed all the above tests 100%
This is what it is like to own a drive like this,
If it was the first drive i bought
I would not have a single problem with any task. Would not have become a member here. would not payed much attention to media because it works on anything.
the only thing i would have been wondered since a would have no complaints. is if there is a faster one
Now i know it's just a fast as the rest, some times faster i don't have to fiddle with the speed to prevent coasters on low grade media or high grade media that switched manufacturing plants or quality.
Yes i tested way to many drives, some were faulty, defect, returns and some i was dissatisfied with function and quality, i contacted allot of the manufactures about there problems.
As long a you want to settle for less be my guest.
If there were more people like me you would not have so many problems in the forms, sure the drives would cost little more, much better parts and chips and firmware are worth it.
