16x doesnt matter, 12 is just a minite off and i already have a benq and liteon. What is the most important to me, is burn quality and acuracy, and consistency.
I run a media production company, basically mass produce independent producitons (ALL by hand my epson printer and guitonee cutting board) so a few bad fiscs can cost me a client. I stick to Taiyo yuden for my back ups and have been using Prodisc printables, but due to trouble, I am switching over to ritek, so I am sure i wont have media problems
can you cross flash a 712 to 716(I know read the faq)
Also do either of these support Bitsetting, or PIE + PIF. I can live without PIE i have a scanner already, but if no bitsetting, which i am pretty sure there isnt because i would have remember after reading “choosing a 16x” 40 page post
one more thing I am getting SATA for conevnience, and aesetics(alreadu have 6 HD’s) i am aware of the issuues already, and i have a 4port card on the way
Thanks for any help, hopeully this post will be a good reference
