Princo Bad ? No!

Look @ This !! Princo DVD-R 4x

Burned 1.5 Years AGO !!!


#2

Is that the scan from 1.5 years ago?


#3

Doubtful as there was no 3520 with 1.UG firmware. BTW, not to demean your title, but that is not a very good scan. PIFs that high are a little too close to the max. Also, a scan from then to compare would be nice.


#4

That scan looks like a very typical Princo scan. They’re known to get worse at the end.

Princos are consistant alright - consistantly BAD.

You mean PIEs?


#6

1.5 years ago?? WoW, you must be keeping the burnt disc in freezer to keep it from the heat. The scan looks fine for a PRINCO

I don’t always say “where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” but Princo does not have a good reputation for stability or longetivity. I’ve read around quite a bit and found more than enough to convince me Princo is not the way to go. Also, sites like 1clickdvdcopy will say to stay away from cheap media like Princo. I was going to name 2 others, but their name slipped my mind… :frowning: If it holds up for you after that long, than you may be one of the ‘outliers,’ statistically speaking. :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

he probably meant PIEs, Zevia. Chas has worked hard today, answering all the posts he has, so perhaps it was just a slip of the fingers? :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

Well I typed PIE and somehow it came out as PIF. thsnajd forw cthsckn the aerrorrss hguys. :wink:


#10

i wounder if dupondje made a typo as well, perhaps the thread title should read.

Princo Bad ? Yes !!!




#11

That scan is actually good for PRINCO, at least you get 48% score instead of 0, hehe…


#12

i thought these discs were quite good when i first brought them (2 X 25 tubs) most have now been thrown away i have 3 left and this is the best 1 of the 3 ie: it doesn`t jerk on play back.

you live and learn :slight_smile:


#13

My scan of an Princo 4x burned one and a half year ago… :Z

Chose yourself, bad or good? :stuck_out_tongue:

Note. Only readable on my Litey.



#14

you could always use the pie graph in a “Worms” game, then blast the disc with the flamethrower :slight_smile:


#15

You have a Princo, pinto2? :stuck_out_tongue: :o :eek:


#16

A hillarious thread!


#17

Hehe… last time I went to buy Fuji TY discs in the store… and I saw Princos. When I looked at the price I was thrilled… they cost more then Fuji TY. =P

It’s sad to know that somebody might actually buy them.


#18

My princo’s work fine, no other disk has such good compatebility with DVD players…so i really dont care much about PIE/PIF, as long as they work good in dvd players, you wont hear me complain.


#19

If only PIE/PIF would show problems…


#20

You know with the “great” reputation Princos have I would love to see what a Princo burner would look like…especially burning Princo discs.
