I agree Plextools PIPO scans is time consuming.In real life, after learning the scans and knowing what media is good at what speed, I never scan my backups anymore. :iagree:
Back to the topic.
avsgenie, you're observing PIPO vs transfer rate scan? IMHO, I don't take seriously the transfer rate scan especially for movie backups, since home dvdplayer only read the disk at lower speed.
I just wish I had a cost and time-effective way of doing it.
Scanning a disk in BenQ/NeroCDSpeed is a lot faster than using PlextorDrive/Plextools. With Nero, we can scan in one click and after 10 minutes will show everything: PIE, PIF, Jitter, Read and Write speed. I hope that NeroCDSpeed will support plextor's drive in the future.
