I see lots of post about people trying to burn 8x media at 12x, 16x, and shows graph with astronomical (j/k) amount of errors, and I can’t help but ask myself, is it really worth saving the extra 5 minutes but risk having a bad disk a few years down the road when burning at 8x produces exceedingly good results such as this?
Yeah and I’ll bet you always drive in third gear too…
FYI, this is rima.com $0.6 YUDEN000T02 8x DVD+R media burned at 8X using PX-712A.
I agree totally, especially since some very competent experts hold that faster burns reduce disc life span. I burn everything at 4X.
Okay wildgoose, you’re gonna have to give up the info on that drive. Manufacture date, TLA#, and serial (if not too sensitive). I don’t get burn graphs anywhere near that even using T02 at 8x.
Ok Two Degrees, I’ll post it by this weekend.
I ordered about a month ago from Dell Small Business.
Wildgoose, nice scan. When did you order/get that T02 from rima? I’s asking because there’s evidences that lately TYs quality is a little down (see media forum).
Wildgoose what you burn that dvd with? a nec!!!..haha, or is that a “pressed” factory dvd…haha plex esp a 712…couldnt have such good results, unless you probably burned it @2x!!!
Mine produces these results as well… And factory pressed DVD often have a higher PI/PO count than the scan wildgoose posted
He said he got it from Rima in post #3. I’ve tried both Fuji and Plextor T02 and haven’t really noticed a huge difference on my PX-712A; I get mediocre results with both types.
