I have a question about the write quality of my plextor drive, which is the PX-712-T03 TLA0102. It seems to be that writing at 8speed is causing very bad quality discs. When I start a Q-Check PI-PO Test. It begins very low. Then after around 0.7GB it is rising very rapid, sometimes at the end, it reaches 400/500+â€¦?! Arita DVD+ (RITEK R03 ref01) 8x certified.
A friend of my has the same drive, firmware, only a different TLA (bought 3 months earlier) and uses the same media provided by Arita. Here the write quality results are much better. The score with the same test shows a result of under â€˜10â€™, which must mean very good. I got these results also only when writing at 4x.
Hope I explained my problem well.
I also sended this as an email to plextor support.
