[QUOTE=raziel2001au;2211529]I purchased a BenQ DW2000 to replace my old LiteOn 18x (of similar design). I’m glad I’m back to using QSuite…[/QUOTE]
Remember, the BenQ DW2000 is a Lite-On drive, so what you are actually using are Lite-On functions that have been renamed. QSuite isn’t going to work exactly the same way it does with a real BenQ (Nexperia chipset) drive:
SolidBurn On For Known Media (BenQ) = Force Hyper Tuning (Lite-On)
WOPC (BenQ) = Online Hyper Tuning (Lite-On)
In general, turning SolidBurn (Force Hyper Tuning) on for media that already has a built-in firmware strategy is pointless. It only helps when a particular spindle or batch of media tends towards being sub-par, and then it can help improve burns in some cases significantly. Otherwise, your burns will generally be better with it off, especially if you’re using good media.
The write strategies in the firmware can’t be altered by SolidBurn. Instead, it creates a new strategy that temporarily takes precedence over the built-in strategies, until such time as you turn it off, and get rid of the learned strategies by clearing them out.
Once again, the BenQ DW2000 is a rebadged Lite-On DH-20A1P, and as such, it learns the way a Lite-On learns, not the way a real BenQ learns. So, the fact that it creates a new strategy each time is normal, as that is how Lite-On’s learning function works. With a real BenQ, it works by creating one strategy, and then adjusting and modifying that after each burn, so there is only one entry in the table.
