PX-716A Questions? (TLA 0304, FW 1.06)



Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster.

So I just picked up one of these drives today and updated to the latest firmware. So I decided to run some tests and was wondering if anyone could help me decipher the results. Are they good results or not. Any explanations would be helpful

TLA: 0304
FW: 1.06
Manufactured: Mar 2005
MEDIA: Verbatim 16X DVD+R

Burned backup of steam downloaded Half-Life 2 @ 16X with Nero. (Approx 2.8GB)

Here are my Graphs from Plextools Pro.



See the line at 280 for the SUM8 test? Or the one at 4 for the SUM1? You want the results to be below those. As you can see, they are within those levels, especially the SUM8/PIE level which seems to be 20 max. A good burn, though burning only half a disc sorta doesn’t count, since the outer edge is where errors tend to shoot up.
