I can get either of these, which burns better at 8x? Thanks
mcc03 verbatim, is that the 16x? Those would be better at 8x Id say.

mcc03 verbatim isn’t 16x dvd media, it’s 8x speed media.

Both burn great constantly at 12X with incredibly low error counts.
TY T02 are a tad better.
Depends on the batch you can get. My batch, MCC003 burns better @12x than TYT02 @12x.
I still like the advantage of T02 can be overspeed to 16x.
mattyboy, how can you tell mcc003 would be better if you don’t even know that it’s 8x rated?
Only 47 PIF on TYT02? Amazing!!!
Here is a scan of mine, mada on TYT02 at 12x speed with Nero 184.108.40.206
I got a 96% quality score in CD-DVD Speed for MCC003 and 95% for TYT02, both burned at 8x.
Burned at 12x, I got 96% for MCC003 and 98% (!) for TYT02.
The TYT02 @ 12x gives a higher PI-error count (3.06 versus 1.57 for MCC003), but a very low PIF count (0.02, 117 total).
Quality Score in Nero CDSpeed is somehow misleading, IMO. I am talking about v3.5x, haven’t check v3.61 yet. I think Erik (the author) gives PIF more weight to obtain the score.
For example this post: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=750703&postcount=186
1st pic: max PIE 19, max PIF 8, QS 95%, while
2nd pic: max PIE 295(!), max PIF 7, QS 96%.
I know from my LiteOn days that PIF’s are a lot more serious; I believe a PIE of max 240 was still acceptable, while PIF should not be more than 4 preferably. Not sure how that translates to the Benq scans though. And I agree that the -r scan you showed (with average 145 PIE) seems very questionable.
As for the Verbatim vs TY (Fuji in my case), the TY gives me constantly higher PIE rates (2 - 4 times higher).
