[QUOTE=Halcyon;2042771]This is perfectly normal.
And a great reminder to newcomers and old-timers alike, that there is NO reference standard for dvd read error measurements.
All drives report what they see and they optimize the reading differently.
Plextor is NOT more accurate than LiteOn or Benq.
They are just different.
But LiteOns on general are more tolerant of very high jitter and even some other types of reading challenges, making them sometimes too optimistic as general scanners: that is, they will report really low read error rates, not because the disc itself is a great burn, but because a LiteOn drive is such a great reader.
This means that it is silly and even misleading to draw conclusions about disc quality from a single scan using a single drive, esp. a really good reader (like a LiteOn).[/QUOTE]
I agree with all that. It’s almost useless to just have one scanner and quite stupid to base judgment on a disc just because of how one scanner sees it. Even with two or three scanners, there’s no guarantees that one disc is superior to another.
Here’s a recent scan I did, which shows the liteons high tolerance and the BenQs more fussy reading. High speed scanning stresses the liteon out enough to produce similar results to the benQ. TRT slowdowns are also present in every single drive I try the disc on.
(BTW- CMC MAG E01 is usually great media for me, I was experimenting with strategy swapping. The disc was written with SonyD11 settings I think).
