The Sony 5300s has been reporting low scan error rates using Nero DiscSpeed (the other being the Samsung SH-B123L). It’s now possible to test how it will perform running ODC.
The following tests are done using commercially pressed BD’s. The first, Journey to Agartha, has “Made in Japan” printed on the disc, presumably pressed in Japan. The second, Porco Rosso, does not.
Agartha has low error rates reported over both layers, but Porco has second layer error rates that are 3 times as high as the first layer. It’s not clear if these are artifacts inherent in the disc, or a reminder that most drive don’t handle DL media well.
These scans don’t seem to reveal any meaningful difference between Nero and ODC. The performance of the three drives are quite similar, no problem dealing with the layer change.
All drives (except the Sony) are installed in ICH10R based system running MS AHCI W7 drivers.
