Just a couple of brief notes to their preview.
- Are those "freaky" guys not capable of adjusting the max speed value of the graph's scale...
..e.g. like this ?
- It's written underneath the graph : [COLOR=darkred][I]"With CD-R writing, the Premium writer adopts the F-CAV writing strategy"[/I]
Is this the 4th writing strategy discovered , or they, like, prefer to call CAV like that, i.e. Full-CAV ? :rolleyes:
Or in their case the "F" perhaps stands for something else ?
" With 24 re-writing, the drive adopts the P-CAV strategy. But Nero have mis-labelled it as CLV."
What's shown here is clearly CLV to me, even if the drive starts @22x.
So, I guess it's the HwZ experts who have mis-labelled it as P-CAV.
PCAV is supposed to look like this :
" At an estimated pricing of S$230 (or lesser), the Plextor Premium may seem like an expensive investment.."
Well, according to the Plextor statement ( FREMONT, Calif. â€” April 14, 2003 ) >
" The Premium drive has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $129.00 USD. "
