Have just received some Verbatim MCC 004 from SVP (made in India) and although the burns are not too bad they’re definately not as good as previous batches.
It’s also quite interesting to note that out of a 25 cake QScan recommended none be burnt at X16, about 20 at X12 max and the other 5 at X8 max
I have actually burnt about half the cake using nero and although a speed of X12 set only one has managed this. One would only burn at X4 max
When scanning the disc, previous batches have generally given 98% with a couple of 99s. This batch has so far produced 1 coaster, scores of generally 96/97% and only 1 98%, which was the disc burnt a X4
The Verbatim code is ZD3056-DVR-T47D. When the discs were ordered (5 days ago) SVP were quoting a product code of 3229.
Here’s a copy of my latest burn with nero at X16. Nero only reached X8.
WOPC & Overspeed enabled
Solidburn activated for known & unknown media.
Previous batches had tended to give PIEs of <10 max and a total of < 20000 ish, with PIF of < 4 max and a total of < 200 ish.
Hope this helps. (Does anyone have any recent Plextor +R T03 scans of media bought from SVP as I am considering these as an alternative - from what i’ve read the T03 batches can vary as well).
