Haha!! No zabadee. I am fully aware that the 1650 is alot better writer of T02 than my 111. I recently took my 1650 out of that P3 comp i was moaning about, and now i just swap the drives in and out of my enclosure (cant be bothered to buy a 2nd enclosure just because of lazyness).
Honestly the only reason I was praising the 111 so much was because it makes very good burns, just not AS good as the 1650. The 111 is just as good as alot of other burners out there at the moment when it comes to SL burns. In fact I wouldnt be surprised if BenQ drives favoured their burns, whether they do or dont i dunno, but you never know. If you want an all rounder, and dont care about lightscribe, then its the 111. If you want a drive that excells with SL media and dont care about DL burning at present and dont mind waiting till better firmware comes out, and you happen to think that lightscribe is something more than just a gimmick, then get the 1655. :bigsmile:
I get 97% scores with both the 111 and 1650 on SL media, the 1650 gets 98%;s more often. If I was in a rush, and I had the 111 in the enclosure,I wouldnt exactly be swapping the 111 out for the 1650 just for that extra 1 percent and less PIF's, as the PIF max would be 6, with 360 PIF's, for the 111 instead of PIF Max 4 and 60 PIF's. The read curve is the same, and both play in my dvd player and are read by other readers.
If you REALLY want to be picky like alot of 'cd-freaks' here, and you care about those extra PIF's, then its the 1650/55 for you.
And seeing as you've invited me to praise my 111 :p, If the 111 had come out at the same time as the 1650, I would've got the 111, as it serves my needs better, with DVD-RAM, and 8X burning of MKM 001 :bigsmile: And as long as the dvd's burned by the 111 are readable for a good year, then thats good enough for me. If I hadnt become a member here, and I didnt use the 1650 for scanning, burning those SL dvd discs, just for the sake of those fewer PIF's, then I would've sold the 1650 by now lol. But since I AM a cd freaks member, I do 'like' fewer PIF's, and can easily just use my 111 till a better
See? Not that bad?
takes a deep breath
