If on the same price range, which would you prefer, 8x RICOHJPNR02 or 16X MCC004? I use BenQ 1620 pro and 822A.
It’s difficult find known branded 8x RICOHJPNR02 discs ,so go for Verbatim’s MCC004 for sure.
Both are pretty good, but my Philips 1640 prefers RICOHJPNR02.
the ricohjpnr02 8x are branded as imation while the mcc004 16x are verbatims.
I wouldn’t know about the BenQ, but on my Plextor PX-712A the MCC004 is the best burn @12x (max speed for this drive) I have ever seen. The only RICOHJPN-R02-03 I burned (LiteOn branded) was much much worse, exceeding 280 PIE and exceeding 4 PIF!
But my experience could be a fluke or your drive could have the opposite preference, who knows?!
