Just got a 716UF for couple days and have been doing some burns and scanning and just thought I would share with some comments as below:
Plextor 716UF connected via USB
TLA#0307 (Manufactured JUNE 2005)
Burning software: Dvd Decrypter 188.8.131.52
(1) To avoid variables, the first 3 burns I did were from the EXACT same ISO image on 3 different media:
FIRST - UNBRANDED TYG02 (RIMA), SECOND - Verbatim MCC 02RG20 - THIRD - “High Quality” with fake TYG02 (I tested this just for heck of it since I have bunch of them left. Was tricked into these from Meritline a while back). The HQ could not finish scanning with a “medium error” msg. I didn’t post the PIF (reached the 5 picture limit) but the maximum reached 208.
