i think demanding 99% is over the top as i dont think that a disc with 99% is necessarely always better that a disc with a score of 97% as you all know it only takes the max pif which could just be caused by the reader.
I for one have noticed on my 1620 that pif spikes aways ocure in simular positions on different media burnt with different drives these do not bother me.
I judge the quality of my discs not just on the max PIF i take by observing the PIE,PIF, and jitter statistics one can draw a better picture of the quality of the disc burnt.
Now regarding RMA’ing a drive because your not getting 99% in Nero cd speed this to me is outrageous and completely Unfair on BENQ.
BENQ make and sell dvd writters that are as cheap as any other drive out there yet the features and funtionality of there products are unparalleled for the price.
Now people RMA drives because OF MAX PIF only.
Which bassically means that theoretically there are people out there that could have a disc with a total of 5 pif’s in one spike and thus rma the drive because nero cd speed disc qulaity % fails to recognise all the factors that make a good burn.
People believe that ty media is so perfect that if your not getting 100% quality scans then there is something wrong with the drive.
The fact is I have offcial ty t02 +r media and some batches of it gets many more pif spikes than cheap non verbatim mccoo3 discs when burnt @8x.
What i am saying is that perhaps the batch of ty media you got is not perfect but still amazingly good enough to last for the next 20 years or so.
