It works very well at 4x and I even got working disks at 6 and 8 even though the quality was lousy. Not bad even at 60 bucks and some store are now subbing other media so you folks might want to check around.
I want to have fun a bit today, so i patched HS0P descriptor of R00 to 4x. (it it easily done, as long as you know how to use hexedit.) I only have time to burn only 1 disc from this ARITA RICONJPN-R00 at 4x though.
The result, well…, same old RICOH story on 811s. Scan at 4x get around 250 PI at the end of disc, scan at 2.4x get < 10 PI. Don’t know what to believe yet. Discs are still playable, btw.
I’ll burn another one tomorrow on my 1300A and scan it again. If the result is good, then i’ll go back to my NEC for these RICOH.
