Hey all - Just thought I'd share (I like to do that...) I've been testing a lot of different discs on a lot of different speeds to get the best results and I think I have found what works for me so far. (It should work for you too - all the tests I did were at least performed twice to account for any anomolies.) In any case, I tried numerous brands and numerous types of CDs to get the lowest consistent burn errors (C1) and this is what I'm getting out of the best batch: (Dead Link Removed) These were TY silver-surface printables burned at 16x on a Plextor PX-716UF. Other discs evaluated were: Mitsui Silver Mitsui Gold DiskMakers Premium DiskMakers Premium Printable (both color surfaces) Office Depot and Staples Generic TDK TDK Printables Memorex Not surprisingly, the generics did not fare well. In fact, they averaged between 22 C1/S to 35 C1/S. The Memorexes were the next running an average of 14 C1/S. (FYI... Averages based on burns of 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x, 32x, and 48x) The TDK standard disc was next and was much better than the others mentioned so far at around 8 C1/S. Mitsui Silver and Disk Makers Premium (standard surface) came really close together at roughly 5.5 C1/S and the Mitsui Gold besting them both at an average of 3.9 C1/S. Consistently, the discs with the greater mass (the printable surfaces) did better than all the others. Each of the printable surface discs were under 2 C1/S average with the TY being the best by what I consider to be a rather wide margin of almost 1 C1/S better than the others. These compared rather consistently at .8 C1/S as an average. I definitely found that these discs work best though at 16X, which after speaking with a MicroBoards rep, was confirmed. Anywho...Got bored last night and had insomnia, so I thought I'd put them to the test. It's been an evaluation a long time in the preparation, but I think it was worth it. J.
