[QUOTE=JeanLuc;2618106]Wait … this thread is about BD-R and this blogger is ranting about BD-RE?
Either I am stupid or I just fail to see the basic connection …[/QUOTE]
Don’t know you well enough to comment on your IQ ;), but you’re right. There is no connection. Yet he apparently stumbled across some bad reviews of Panasonic BD-RE’s and using their flawed statistical formulas he arrived at the conclusion that " we cannot recommend the brand’s Blu Ray media products".
Yes, I heard you all say “WHAT!!” from here :D. He also failed to understand just how quickly media marketing changes. For instance, if TDK branded BD-R’s were to suddenly change from high quality made in Japan by TDK media to another less reliable manufacturer(which they did), his recommendations are instantly wrong.
Tried to explain to him that weighting their results based on past brand name approval is worse than useless in too many cases. Weighting by MID may have given him some useful results, but I don’t think he had any intention of taking the time to try to become a little more knowledgeable on the subject of media manufacturing. Just crunchin’ some numbers and making it appear sophisticated enough to mislead folks into thinking it might be meaningful .
As I said, it appears he has moved on to some other world-shaking endeavor, and attempts to post comments and try to help keep it updated and maybe a little useful are completely ignored. That’s a shame.
