i got a mitsu 4809, and i’ve always been curious about the lifespan of the laser when it comes to burning cds. I’ve checked the manufactures MTBF is 50,000 hrs POH min. But, this number is useless to me, and mileage does vary.
A friend of mine had told me that his old 8x(i don’t know what brand) did a little over a 1000 cds before it died. I’m hittin the 400 mark as we speak…
So the question i’m asking you guys is, how many cds can you burn before a cdrw drive dies? Personal testimonial would be greatly appreciated No matter what brand or what speed, tell me your story. Thanks.
