Its time for a proper BDR-203 & clones ‘Results & Discussions’ thread I think :wink:

I’ll start with:

TDK 4x BD-R, jewel cased, 5pk set, Made in Japan
MID:TDKBLDRBB-000
Written @ 4X
Drive: BDR-S03 fw1.10


#2

[B]Infinity 4x BD-R printable[/B], jewel cased, 5pk set
MID:CMCMAGBA3-000
Written @ 4X
Drive: BDR-S03 fw1.10



#3

[B]MITSUBISHI 2x BD-R LTH printable[/B], 20pk spindle, Made in Japan
MID:VERBATIMw
Written @ 2X
Drive: BDR-S03 fw1.10

Based on the 1st burn it seems that either the end area of the disc is not of particularly high quality or the writing strategy towards the end of the disc is not quite right.

The second burn (with less data in order to avoid that region of the disc) is very impressive though! :bow:

[B]RITEK 4x BD-R printable[/B], 10pk spindle, Made in Taiwan
MID:RITEKBR2-000
Written @ 4X
Drive: BDR-S03 fw1.10

Again, either the end area of the disc is not of particularly high quality or the writing strategy towards the end of the disc is not quite up to scratch.

The second burn (with less data in order to avoid that region of the disc) is decent enough though!

New firmware 1.11 is out (thanks 2601 for reporting it :flower:) but unfortunately still no overspeeding for 2x BD-R Verbatim media :sad: :sad: :sad: … that’s very disappointing indeed as virtually all other burners can overspeed this media to 6x or 8x :doh: … at least 4x writing on this media would have been nice :rolleyes:

C’mon Pioneer get your act together, this is a rather ridiculous omission and a long overdue feature now! :a
