After some extensive testing here are the results -
As you can see, the majority of the cds actually seem ok. Many of the low error rates (0.20 - 0.70) seems to be minor fluctuations and weren’t there when performing a surface scan again. Although this questions the integrity and stability of the discs, giving different error rates. I am going to reburn the discs with a consistently high error rate to ensure the data is ok.
Although they are a little disappointing compared to traxdatas older line, with exception of a few they are still good cds. The low error rates are hardly a cause for concern as the mode 1 error correction seems to take care things easily. (In my experiance a 1% error rate is normal for a disc that is a few months old no matter what brand it is.)
I shall continue using them, but from now on I will check each disc after burning to make sure it is ok. What do you guys think the results, good discs or bad discs?
