Got tired of the drive, it doesn’t burn as well as my BenQ when comparing the two. What brought me to the conclusion? An 8x DVD+R Sampler pack. Even on TY 8x DVD+R media the BenQ walks all over my NEC ND3500AG in write quality. The other deciding factor is the fact that my Samsung CD-RW/DVD combo is a much better reader (almost on par with the BenQ in that terms) then the NEC and I didn’t trust reading in the NEC at all. I didn’t save the common media scans but here are a couple of the other scans I did. I know some of them aren’t full discs - my apologies for that.
First scan is an Optodisc OR8 8x DVD+R burned at 8x.
Second scan is a Prodisc R03 8x DVD+R burned at 8x.
