vbimport

#1

PX-716A fw 1.06 PowerREC off and Autostrategy on.

BenQ DW1620A fw B7U9, WOPC on. Thought about switching WOPC off - but stupid BenQ programmers can’t code programs! Basically it crashes on my computer :frowning:

Scanned with BenQ DW1620A.


#2


BenQ write time: 5 min 54 seconds
Plextor write time: 5 min 54 seconds

Disc brand: That’s write!

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins (due to PIF spikes in the BenQ result).
PI Errors: BenQ wins clearly
PI Failures: ignoring the spikes and the result is almost identical, still a slight lead for the plex.
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ.
Overall, I don’t like the PIE error increase of the plextor, I prefer the Benq result over the Plextor result.


#3


BenQ write time: 5 minutes 57 seconds
Plextor write time: 5 minutes 53 seconds

Disc brand: Verbatim

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins (again due to a single PIF spike at the end of the benq result)
PI Errors: BenQ wins clearly
PI Failures: ignoring the spikes and the result is almost identical, still a lead for the plex.
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ.
Overall, I don’t like the PIE error increase of the plextor, I prefer the Benq result over the Plextor result.


#4


Write time benq: 5 minutes and 59 seconds
Write time plextor: 6 minutes and 41 seconds. Writing at 12x speed!

Disc brand: That’s Write!

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins by one point
PI Errors: Hardly any difference
PI Failures: Plex wins
Jitter: close to identical
Overall, benq wins - since plextor only write at 12x.


#5


Recording time Benq: 5 mins 54 seconds
Recording time plextor: 5 mins 55 seconds

Disc brand: TDK

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins
PI Errors: BenQ wins clearly
PI Failures: ignoring the spikes and the result is almost identical, still a slight lead for the plex.
Jitter: tiny victory for BenQ.
Overall, I don’t like the PIE increase of the plextor, I prefer the Benq result over the Plextor result. But both have problems at the end of the disc.


#6


BenQ write time: 5 mins 59 seconds
Plextor write time: 6 mins 2 seconds

Disc brand: MiFlop Extreme

Conclusion:
Quality score: BenQ wins
PI Errors: BenQ wins clearly
PI Failures: BenQ wins
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ.
A clear - but unexpected wictory for Benq, as benq is usually not so good with DVD-R media.


#7


Write time benq: 5 min 54 seconds
Write time plextor: 5 min 59 seconds

Disc brand: Fujifilm

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins
PI Errors: BenQ wins clearly
PI Failures: a slight lead for the plex.
Jitter: a VERY clear victory for BenQ.
Overall, I don’t like the PIE error increase of the plextor, I prefer the Benq result over the Plextor result any day.


#8


Benq write time: 5 minutes and 52 seconds
Plex write time: 6 minutes and 23 seconds

Disc brand: BenQ.

Conclusion:
Quality score: plextor wins (due to an error spike at the end of the benq result).
PI Errors: Hardly any difference, but the plextor have the usual “plextor PIE spike” at the end.
PI Failures: Clear victory for BenQ.
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ.
Overall, I don’t like the PIE error increase of the plextor, I prefer the Benq result over the Plextor result, but there is hardly any difference. Notice that the plex disc was written at overall lower speed which may affect the result.

Wow! That was a lot of work. Thank you for sharing this information! :bow:

Let’s sum it up and analyse it a bit:

Plextor (first line) and Benq (second line) scores:
96, 95, 95, 94, 95, 97, 97
82, 92, 94, 91, 97, 94, 92

That makes 6:1 wins for Plextor.

Biggest lead: Plextor with 96 vs. 82 (14 percent better) on CMC +R.
Benq only win has a smaller margin 97 vs. 95 (2 percent better) on Yuden -R.

Plextor results remain very regular within 3 percent (94-97) whereas Benq results vary more widely (82-97) with 15 percent.

Side Note: The scan of the Daxon media done in the Plextor was scanned at only 6x which might bias the result a bit in favour of Plextor.

conclusions?


#12

pioneer?


#13

Benq, of course. Wonder where my brain was… :confused:


#14

OK, OC please delete the last irrelevant posts so that we not spoil the thread.


#15

Yes - my conclusion will not be the same as the one posted by hwp. You can’t blindly look at the quality score, one PIF spike and the score is messed up (which is the case for several benq burns).


#16


Write time Benq: 6 minutes and 11 seconds
Write time Plextor: 6 minutes and 1 second

Disc brand: Verbatim

Conclusion:
Quality score: BenQ wins
PI Errors: BenQ wins
PI Failures: Benq wins
Jitter: almost same - but the plextor result shows the highest % while the benq shows the highest average % Benq jitter is also more stable lavel - overall benq wins.
Overall the victory goes to benq - unexpected again.


#17


Write time benq: 6 minutes 1 seconds
Write time plextor: 6 minutes and 24 seconds

Disc brand: Traxdata

Conclusion:
Quality score: Plextor wins (due to 1 single error spike in the BenQ scan)
PI Errors: Clear victory for BenQ
PI Failures: Clear victory for BenQ.
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ.
Overall there is no doubt - Benq all the way.


#18


Write time benq: Wow first time EVER that I’ve found a disc that do not work at certified speed with the benq. Wrote at 8x in 8 minutes and 53 seconds.
Write time plex: 6 minutes and 1 second

Disc brand: Traxdata

Conclusion:
Quality score: Same - but remeber benq wrote at 8x only.
PI Errors: Plextor wins
PI Failures:Plextor wins
Jitter: clear victory for BenQ - but remeber - it wrote at 8x only
First clear victory for Plextor - benq only wrote at 8x.


#19

These were great! Thanks for all the effort. One thing missing was the burn speed. Just when I thought you were burning everything at 12X or 16X you mention 8X. And, of course, one is always pleased when one’s drive and favorite media win out.

The writing speed curve is shown in white colour in every image :wink:
