This one is equal to Two Degrees’ scans above in my opinion, but since we’re using different drives for the scans it’s impossible to know. :wink:

None of the 712A drives I’ve owned ever really did that great with this MID, but this isn’t a [B]bad[/B] burn. Discs were made in Taiwan by CMC Magnetics, lot number ZD4845-DVR-I47C.

This hardly goes without saying, but the 712 drives greatly prefer +R to -R. These discs were made in Taiwan by Prodisc, lot number ZD2343-DVR-X47B.

Two Degrees, amazing burn! I wonder if we will every see 18x burns that looks like that (not from this drive of course). :wink:

Good old 708a still going strong an knowing perfectly how to handle 16x media.

#16

[B]Taiyo Yuden -R 16x[/B] (TYG03) sold by Panasonic
PX-708a, FW 1.12
Burn speed 4x CLV, no slowdown

Good old 708a knowing how to use -R 16x media. A bit higher PIE values but very regular and nothing critical. This from a batch of media that shows higher PIE values in the 755 and 760 drives too.
