Good performance from an old writer

Old NEC burners earned a good reputation for handling poor quality and rare media quite well. They were even recommended by some smaller manufacturers for use with their media (Princo, 3A Media, etc.).

I see the speed drops at writing, but still not sure if NEC have running OPC, do anyone know it?

Im remember Liggy and Dee modified FW for the NECs, so the writing-strategies maybe the only reason for the results.

In near future I will test some other media with the NEC.

Long time ago I had an 3500, but wasn´t hat pleased, the big point for a NEC was overspeeding, NEC allowed you to burn good 4x and 8x media at higher speeds

That´s real nice

I wonder why you still use the 1650 so often? Sometimes I think the old Benqs are not so good for all type of media

Many reasons. The Nexperia Benqs are my favourite drives, I know them thoroughly and been using them for years so the test results are consistent and comparable. And they are pretty good with old and obscure MIDs and ATIPs. Also, I do not trust any modern Mediatek based drives for testing, they are too forgiving (and downright unusable for CD-R testing).

I agree for old and exotic MIDs, but newer 16x-media isn´t Benqs favorite

CD-Rs I don´t use often, but Benq is my favorite for scanning it

It´s hard to say which drive I can trust @scanning,

I have some media which is loved by Benq but hate by MTK-writers and vice versa.

And this with 2 identical scanners

Modern MTK-drives are similar with older ones @PIF, but PIE seems to be higher than with older drives, sometimes also with Benqs

Looks nice again.

Will you make soon again scans because of degradiation process?

I surely will do.

This DVD has visible Dye-defects

If the Benq-burned media don´t have dye-defects, the Asus would be the clear winner :wink:
