Taiyo Yuden DVD+R

I don´t thought the 16x with the Asus is so much more worse than 8x

More difference between two generations than I thought. Can´t believe these writers are so different, maybe also the media have a wide vary of quality? Or the drive have a weak laser?

There is some media variation with this spindle that I did not notice before. Usually results with iHAS124 B are better than with iHAS124 C for the same media, but not in this case. It seems that the burn with the iHAS124 C is better than the burn with the iHAS124 B?

Yep, in the case of PIF it is. And I´m more focussed on the PIF than PIE

I burned 100 discs with the iHAS124 B and 10 discs with the iHAS124 C. I used the iHAS124 B for more scans than the iHAS124 C, but I don’t think there is a laser issue here.

Crazy PIE.

The PIF-cluster should be media-dependent, reminds me of newer MCC-media

The Asus (LG) beat the LiteOn clearly, but not sure if it only depend on the writer. The cluster looks like a media-problem because the most of the burn looks fiarly good

The discs from the last spindle I am using have proved not very consistent in quality but regardless of this I strongly believe that the Asus is a much better writer than the LiteOn. It’s probably not worth the trouble to try for better results from the LiteOn.

Yeah, sometimes I still wonder about LG. LG was in the past known for not good FW-support while LiteOn often update their FW. LiteOn uses MTK-chipsets since the CD-RW-drive LTR-12102B in year 2000.

LG start AFAIK with MTK-chipsets in 2011 with the GH22NS90/GH24NS90 and offered out of the box a better writing quality than LiteOn in all the years and with many FWs
