Someone over at cdrlabs reported that with this latest firmware (B7M9) they’re doing 8x with TDK Ricohjpnr01. Maybe someone else can confirm. Great news.
I have tried Arita 4x speed, mediacode also Ricojpnr01. My BenQ 1620 with firmware B7M9 (converted Philips 1601P) wrote the disc at 8x speed. I used the latest Nero 188.8.131.52.
Just another happy BenQ owner
I have a pack of Arita Ricohjpnr01 my Plex 708a could only burn them at 4X but my 712a burned them at 8X no problems. I will burn a disk on the BenQ with them tomorrow and see how it does.
it also does cmc mag f01 @8x since b7k9 firmware
DVD Video burned on DW1620(B7M9) RICOHJPNR01 @8X
These are Ritek Ridata branded DVD+R 4X media on sale at newegg HERE for 26.00 for a 100 ct. box
Just realized they also bumped Ritek R02 from 4x to 8x with this release. Benq 8**s had always did these two brands at 8x. I’m glad to see it back.
Ditto. RICOHJPNR01’s @ 8x are amongst my best burns now. PI <5000 and PIF <100.
