Not too bad. :bigsmile:
What’s the serial number? Are they playable in standalone players?

Usable burn :confused::wink: . Only time for a couple test burns so far. Next one will be video to test that.
You can literally roll these into a tube with edges of the disc touching with no apparent harm to disc :eek:. These would serve well for mailed promotional discs. Mail service could just about fold them in half without cracking them :).

Tested a couple in my SAP’s and playback was smooth. No problems. This is a video. These are also the smelliest discs I’ve ever worked with. Powerful moldy-sweet plastic smell when opening the spindle. My wife complained about it when walking by my office door :eek::bigsmile:.

Comments to these Princo:

LG GH24NSC0 burn at 4x, quality very bad

Liteon ihas 324 F burn at 4x, discs not recognizeable

Liteon 18A1H show Power Calibration Error at begin of writing, disc is still blank after that

I think all 4x-burns are made with a standard/universal-write-strategy which not works.

Only newer writer which can burn a readable PRINCO seems to be the Pioneer DVR-S20

Good burn for me, but it looks like Princo don´t like higher scan-/readspeed
