I have 3 Samsung SATA 183L drives, of these my failure rate burning TDK disks (which has been my preferred brand for over 14 years since my first 1x burner CD burner ) at 16x is nearly 15% :a , at 12x the failure rate is 8% or so (I must burn the +R’s at 8x), if I using -R instead of +R from TDK I need to burn at 8x to get the error rate down to 8% the max it will burn the 16x -R’s is at 12x, I’m replacing a set of NEC 3550’s that burned clean at 16x 99+% of the time. As these drives suck! I’m looking for what one would suggest as a replacement which will burn at 16x 99% of the time. Please note I can burn upwards of 50 disks a week (so 8% failures means I have to manually scan all 50 disks, that takes as long as the burn does).
AS I said earlier the Drive that I get must be SATA.
As I see it my options are:
Sony NEC Optiarc 18X DVDÂ±R Model AD-7170S-0B
LITE-ON 20X DVDÂ±R DVD LH-20A1S
LITE-ON 20X DVDÂ±R DVD LH-20A1L-05
