VERBATIMe-000
Burn Speed: 6x ZCLV


#82

Z-CLV? I´m surprised


#83

Me, too. I’d assume it’s rather P-CAV, like it is with CMC and Panasonic media on the “older” writers.


#84

Don´t have the S11, but I´m sure my 208D/209D/E use P-CAV.

My Panasonic Slimdrives have on some media Z-CLV, but on other CAV and P-CAV


#85

I don’t have a 211 yet either, but all previous writers had (P-)CAV as write strategy for this media for any speed above 2x, so I doubt the 211 has Z-CLV, also the media list confirms this, 4x to 12x and 16x all listed as CAV.


#86

Which media is listed for 16x?


#87

VERBATIMe
SONY NN3 (basically unavailable, Sony replaced with RiCrap RITEK BR3)
RITEK BR4 (I’ve yet to see this at all! Where is it!?)


#88

VERBATIMe: Hard to get (IIRC the 6x-media with MABL-logo?)
SONY NN3: Almost impossible to get in shops
RITEK BR4: Also never see it, like many Ritek DVD-MIDs I saw in different FWs


#89

VERBATIMe shouldn’t be that diffictult to get, the 10 pack/spindle #43742 should be that media (it has the MABL logo, and the price is about twice of the Verbatim-CMC media).


#90

I don´t trust the shops ^^

And I don´t know which is the result of 16x burning


#91

These are VERBATIMe

Burning with 16x isn’t a good idea

Lower speeds result in very good burns
