Mitsubishi Chemicals DVD+R DL

Yeah it is a bit weird. :slight_smile: But the disc seem to be okay.
Unfortunately I threw away the banderole or whatever it is called :smiley: But looking at other results posted here where they included the hub code, it should be UAE then. I think I’ll edit the post and fix it.

Do the LG can do a transfer-test on this disc without errors/speeddowns?

Added a TRT. Seems alright I think.

Jep, looks good

Uhm, I generally prefer my newer drives for DL.

Will have to test on a Pioneer drive. MKM 003 seems to perform better than MKM 001 in other posts here. Odd that there are two stampers on a single disc. “0225” is also visible under one of the stampers if shined with light at the right angle. Next up, let’s see if we get the same PIF spike at the begining on a Pioneer.

Rare media these days.

But it´s hard for me to compare because I mostly use a LiteOn-drive for scanning

Yes, but either these are fake, or they sat in this woman’s car (purchased a 15 piece spindle from a local classified ad) in the hot sun a few years. How else would you explain such relatively poor results?

Let’s take your July 2017 result for example:

And then compare it to my own results:

Mind you, this is after testing it on a 215D and suspecting my 215D of having some sort of defect (which of course it doesn’t). I also tried a strategy swap from MKM003 to MKM001 but that didn’t help, not to mention almost every other possible write speed.

This media was also made in Singapore by Verbatim/Mitsubishi itself, dunno if there also fakes on the market.

I guess the media I posted was made by FTI in UAE, and mixed results aren´t rare with this media. Mine was scanned some days after burning, wiothout using it somewhere in meanwhile.

Maybe your 115 is heavy used? Did you try different speeds? Sun beams are not good for organic dyes (CD, DVD)

The Samsung stayed at 4x the whole disc

The 115 was tested after the 215 because I suspected the 215, but both drives are fine. Nice results you just posted with the LG, and surprising results with the BDR-209. Vogelschrek posted good results with his BDR-209 and the same MKM 003.

Yes I wonder if what she sold me was fake. Oh well, this was a local classifieds purchase. Paid $5 for a spindle of 15, no loss, and I needed the dual layer media for something important. I think I’ll test on an old LG drive next.

In my experience LGs last drives were much better in writing quality than older drives. My GH22xxxx aren´t reach the overall quality of actual GH24NSxx

In this case also other LG-based drives look good, like this Asus BD/DVD-Combo

The Pioneer-results also strange for me, especially because the PIE is stable in 2nd layer. But not my 1st burn with disappointing results
