NEC ND-3540A Results Thread (Post your ND-3540A scans here)

roadworker: Also depends on ECC… LiteOn is scanning at 1 ECC, Nec 3520 at 8 ECC (if not set to 1 ECC).

True,but I noticed that by using CDSpeed 4 and 8X ECC,you get always a 95 % quality score if your PIF doesn’t go higher than 9, it doesn’t matter if there are 1000 of those errors or 5000 on the disc…
A scan with a total of 2OO PI failures and only 1 PIF that goes higher than 9,immediatly drops % quality-wise…people would think that 1000 of PI failures at value 9 give a worse disc quality than a scan with 200 PIF with 1 spike that goes up to 10…but it’s the opposite… :confused:

I can’t estimate this burn as “excellent” with so high PI level.
Moreover, high PIF spike is stable.

PIF spike is just a reading glitch. PIE is being reported way overblown by NEC, so you cant trust it.
