James, thanks for the tips. i will try the TY +, I've only used TY -'s. Is there any vendors you've had particular success in sourcing quality discs from? I know all vendor's stock SHOULD all be the same, but they don't seem to be.
My current burners include an Optiarc AD7200-S, an Optiarc AD7220-A,
a cheap LG HLDS GH30N that came with a Dell (I know I need to replace this one!), & an older but low hours Pioneer 109 that's currently not hooked up for burns, but could be if needed.
To getit29, I have seen that quality frequently in the past with TY, Falcon, & Made in UAE Verbs (though it quality seems to have gone down across the board in the last year). At this time what I have around the house are my last 100 pack of Verbs which are averaging around 800 PIF's, & a pack of TY - value line that are averaging around 3000 pif's.
I was getting great results from the made in UAE VERB's, until my last 3 packs. With the 1st 2 the quality seemed to be getting inconsistent, & the one I have now is almost always showing at least 700 pif's.
Just ordered a new cake of TY premium -'s.
