Ritek DVD-R

Speed-issue or damaged media?

The 1650 could do better with F1

Speed issue combined with drive’s dislike for Ritek -R media (and all Oxonol based DVD-R media generally).

Ugly spikes

It should be better especially in the PIE values…

Yep, but the x24 F-series show higher PI than older series or Benq
