Hey all, new to the forums here...
Its about time I buy a dvd writer instead of taking the hd over to a friend's place to burn a few dvdrs...
I've been reading a bunch of reviews on various dvd writer models in both CDFreaks reviews as well as CDRInfo (roughly ~10 to 21 pages respectively per site per drive model): BenQ DW1649, LG 4136B, LG 4156B, Pioneer 109, Pioneer 110D, Sony DRU-800a (with KY01 firmware @ cdrinfo)
Doing a search here on KY04, brings up a few threads. My question is, how good is the new firmware for this drive? Anyone have any results with various media used / tested ?
More specifically, I picked up 2 x 50 packs of TDK "print on" 8x Dvd-r spindles from costco when they recently had the "buy one get one free" coupons a month ago. I'm wondering what pie / pif & quality score results can i be expecting with this combination of firmware & brand media?
I've yet to buy a drive. I'd have to order the sony unit online, vs being able to pickup a LG4136B locally. I currently have an LG-8160B cdrw unit, am happy with it, though i've a preferance towards sony appliances and was curious about this drive.
I don't forsee me using any DL media right now, but figured might as well get something that supports both +/- DL formats.
So, can we get some pif / pie results from this drive & firmware combo?
