Hi all, I’ve been trying to do more testing of my burned discs…both newly burned and those I burned 18-months ago. One of the tests I started running last week is the Q-Check TA test, but I’m not too sure that I really understand what the results are telling me regarding, in particular, the prospect of long-term stability/durability of the disc contents which, afterall, is the ultimate goal for me.
I am pretty clear that you want test results where the peaks on the histogram are nice & narrow, and there is no peak shift or the peaks running together. So higher scores of 4 & 5 tell you that’s been achieved.
Does that translate into being one of the factors leading to better long-term performance of the disc, though?
Thanks so much for any guidance you can provide on the value of this test!
(btw, my version of PlexTools is 2.17…which is what came with my PX-716A drive…can’t find any sort of update on the Plextor site)
