716a TLA#0202 FW 1.07
TDK Corporation, Type 5, 700MB, 24x, 48x offered and selected burn speed in Plextools, Powerec decided to fall back to 40x at around 70 minutes mark (at a speed of 46x).
Sold as TDK Ultra Reflex.
Following are scans for FT/TE, C1/2/U, Beta/Jitter.
Comment: This test is a bit academic since 24x media are not in production any more. The media is also rather old (approximatively 3 years) which may affect the result. The test can thus be seen as a check how good the 716a is at overspeeding CD burns.
HUGE rise in radial error (TE) axial error (FE) stays moderate, the test says the disc can be written at maximum speed, C1 errors are a bit high at the beginning but still within specifications (limit is 220), Beta is pretty good and the Jitter variation has relatively few and low spikes.
Absolutely AMAZING! After the result of the old Fujifilm disc above I wondered whether I should do this test or not. I'm glad I did! Unlike with DVD burning it seems, that radial errors are far less important in CD burning. While Powerec is likely to slow down when the tracking error goes beyond a value 40, this test shows that even overspeed burning can be done on CDs with a high radial error present. OF course, since DVDs have far smaller pits this seems natural. This test also rather well shows the difference in quality between two different 24x media.
