I just bought a 100 pack of MCC 03RG20 Verbatim DVD-Rs and a 100 pack of MCC 004 Verbatim DVD+Rs, and I'm a little confused as to how good the burns I'm producing are. They are being burnt with a Pioneer DVR-215 (1.13) and scanned with a BenQ DW1640 (BSLB).
My Total PI Errors for the MCC 004s is 40,000, with my Maximum PI Errors hovering around 11-12 for most burns. Max PI Failures is 6-8, Total around 1500-2000 most of the time. I figure that's pretty standard.
What's confusing me are the MCC 03RG20s. For an 8X burn, I'm getting incredibly low PI Failures (Max 7, Total 72 on one 8X scan), yet that same scan yielded a PI Error Total of 370,000 and a PI Error Maximum of 62. Of course I'm thrilled with the PI Failure result, but that PI Error Total seems quite high to me. Jitter is excellent, 8.29% average.
Will post scans if anybody wants to see them. Any feedback/opinions would be appreciated. Cheers.
