So what's your top 5 favorite media for the Benq1620?
Im a noob, only tried Taiyo Yudens.
Then why mess with the rest of the media out there?
[joke]TYG01, TYG02, TYG03, YUDEN000T01, YUDEN000T02, YUDEN000T03 =P [/joke]
seriously.. YUDEN000T02 (Fuji, Verbatim Pastel), TYG02 (Verbatim Pastel), MCC003 (Verbatim), MCC02RG20 (Verbatim), MCC004 (Verbatim)
Where can i get those Verbatim pastel with TYG MID? I've read that they are mcc for +R only.
Try svp.co.uk based in the uk http://www.svp.co.uk/acatalog/dvd-rnoprint.html
Verbatim pastel pack of 5.
YUDEN000T02 (Fuji), MCC003 (Verbatim), MCC02RG20 (Verbatim), MCC004@12x (Verbatim), Maxell002 (Maxell)
TYG01's & TYG02's are better in my other burners (NEC's & LG). My BenQ doesn't seem to excel with TY -R media....any firmware. Others have had better results. :sad:
You might not like the speed (slower than +R) but how about quality ?
Cheap and perfect results .
I'm a quality nut......that's what I don't like. High PIE's when scanned on my Liteons....look pretty good on my BenQ CDSpeed scans. They're not coasters, by any means, just aren't as good.
Which fw do you use?I use those two discs exclusively, and finally settled on B7T9.
+R only here, verbatim mcc 004.superb burn.
used to use cmc mag +r infinity's but quality gone bad.
1) Taiyo Yuden T022) MCC 0033) Ritek G05 (I've been lucky?)
next to try: MCC004, maybe some Ritek G04.. sticking with T02 and MCC003 for the stuff I care about.
How about LEAST favourite media? I've got a much bigger list there
Which brand do you buy for the RICOHJPNR03?
I'm curious about that as well.
The 100 pack spindle of TYG01 DVD-R 4x that I bought from shop4tech.com have been the best discs that the BenQ 1620 has burned so far, even better than T02 DVD+R discs. Every disc consistently scores 98 with CDSpeed. PIE are around 30,000, PIF around 100, total.
Edit Forget to mention they were only $28.80 shipped as well.
Ricoh-branded 16X DVD+R. I bought some disks here(Taiwan).It cost a little more compared to Ricoh 4X/8X disks
Thanks. I've searched the web and the only Ricoh branded I have found in the US are 4x (R01) and 8x (R02).I burn the R01's at 8x and the R02's at 12x.
TYG02 and MCC 003 are the only two that make my cut-off. Sorry, I am too picky, all the others have too many errors.
