CDFreaks Plextor 760A Review by Dee-27

Plextor 760A Review by hwp

Infiniti DVD+R 16x MID: PHILIPS-C16-1

Plextor PX-760SA 1.03
AutoStrategy: Auto (I created a full write strategy before burn)
PoweRec: On
Recording Speed: 12x
Burn time: 06:22

Verbatim MCC 004 DVD+R 16x (CMC)
Plextor 760A. TLA#0001 1.03 FW.
AS= Auto, PR On.
Burned @16x with Plextools.
Burn time 6:58.
TA tests. Inner=Very good, Mid=Good and Outer=Bad.
I don’t see a defect on the TE/FE scan so my guess is the spikes are caused by OPC.

Looks like AutoStrategy created a strat for that disc as it was burning, given the “deep” laser calibration shown and the relatively slow write time. I’ll bet your next disc will be faster and not have those spikes.

1200 PIF is about what to expect from Phillips-C16, although the TA test was literally very good with recording the pits/lands, so perhaps this mid burned at 12x is better than the PIF being reported. :confused:


Check out my posts starting here in the 755A thread. I’m getting that same PIE spike as you are, but AS didn’t create a strategy as there is already one in the AS database. Since firmware 1.04 for the 755 is the same as 1.03 for the 760 I wonder if it’s an issue there.

Interesting!! Looks exactly the same. I will fire off these two links to my Plextor contact and see what they say and if I get a reply I will let you know.:wink:

Highly recommended combination :iagree:

Impressive and I don’t think I have seen TA results that good on 16x burns before.

Yes. Must be one of the best 16x burns I’ve ever seeen. Could we get a Beta/Jitter scan of this one?

Nice first post, ACook :slight_smile: :clap:

Note that there are updates available from the Plextor website for PlexTools (2.35) and 760A firmware (1.03). Looks like AutoStrategy is learning the disc at first (did it create an entry - check the database as indicated below)? If your second burn shows the same pattern, then these MCC 03RG20 aren’t the best.
