[QUOTE=Moomin;2026166]I’ve been breaking into my stock of Infiniti <s>MCC003</s> MCC02RG20 (bought almost a year ago), which I bought because of recommendations here, rating it higher over MCC004 by Verbatim.
Scans show 2-3 times more PIE and up to 10 times more PIF than with my Verbatim branded MCC004’s (both MIT and MII).
It’s still well within acceptable range, but I am a bit worried and must ask: any chance of these being fakes? MIDs are <s>MCC003</s> MCC02RG20, but still… These will be used for archiving so I’d like to be sure of reasonable longevity.
I’m using a Pio 212 writer, perhaps it has a bad strategy for <s>MCC003</s> MCC02RG20?
I suppose i bought about 3000 from svp and sold half to friends, burned app 1000 and still have a bit more than a box (600 discs). I mainly use Pioneer 111’s for them and i only have very few cases of bad readability in standalones. Nothing worth a note
