Same disc like above, Scanned in one of my other Benq 1640. Maybe the other Benq I made last scan is a bit defective?

The 1670 is a critical writer

Could you post the serial and hub numbers? I am trying to figure out the OEM producer of these Piodata media.

Begin of dye (outer ring): OPTODISC S160102V
Inner: MFP 130UF0312165 7 (very hard to read, not sure)

That’s very similar to CMC Magnetics’ serial numbering system. It seems that they are the OEM of all current Optodisc DVDR media.

I thought Optodisc are made by

Well, don´t have actual CMC -R, I remember AM3 weren´t bad, but the results I have with Optodisc -R are good

BD-Rs are made by Amethystum Optoelectronics Co., Ltd. Or at least had been for a long time.

The Piodata are my only 16x with this ATIP, so I don´t had a chance to compare.

Do you have serial and hub numbers of other Optodisc?

Here is the example of the original Optodisc DVD´s stamper and serial numbers:
OTC+R88231NB OR8 0512 +R 1~8X (stamper code)
LR20+8A0504132006 (serial number)

Sounds completely different to my Piodatas
