Not me. Not according to that test. Look at this post in that thread: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=819417&postcount=6
There are only ten media types tested. The tested burn speeds were NOT kept consistent throughout the test per each burner tested. The BenQ DW1620 was at firmware B7P9 which is now older than B7T9. Persons here in this forum have shown that certain BenQ DW1620 firmware verions seem to work better with certain types of media than other versions. Also, writing speeds and making quality burns are both affected by which firmware version one is using. We don’t know how many burns were done with each media type in that test and how many burns were done for each listed speed? In other words, did the test do enough burns to rule out the possibility of bad batches. Were all media types (burned on all of the listed drives) from the exact same spindle?
That test doesn’t mean anything right now. It was one test and wasn’t even properly done (i.e. - consistency was lacking throughout it). I am not convinced about anything yet regarding the MSI drive. I want several persons who own a 16x MSI DVD burner posting error scans, transfer rate tests, surface scans, copying their burned movies back to their hard disks tests, etc. I also want users reporting being to play their burned DVDs (from their 16x MSI drives) back in many different home DVD players. Much more in-depth and proper testing needs to be done from many users before I believe anything about an MSI drive.
I’m not saying that my mind is closed. But, I need proper evidence and lots of it before I will say that some MSI burner beats a BenQ DW1620. The test you point to is flawed for several reasons and greatly seems to have been done in an inconsistent manner. It’ll take a lot more proof than that to change my mind; and also many other DW1620 owner’s minds.
