Now that I finally have some understanding of PI/PO peak and average, PI failures, etc., what I don’t know is this:
How far does the original burn quality slide before you toss a burner nowadays?
They’re so cheap as to be not economically repairable, so I don’t know.
Is there some set of cutoff numbers that are “generally accepted”?
If slowing down the drive lets it perform better, how much does that go on before it’s counter productive?
And on overall life expectancy: How many burns do you expect (hope?) to get before deterioration becomes a major consideration?
