@AxBattler:

Benq is very good in PI and PIF when writing TYG02 @8x.
Pioneer burns TYG03 @16x very well, TYG02 @12x has higher PI, but low PIF.

Thanks. Looks like the BenQ & G02 will be my best option then.

This drive (1640) performs at its best when setting speed burns at overspeed for 12X rather than 16X. The follwing is again Maxell 002 DVD+R burned@12X.

Yes remember the biggest concern people had prior to release of BSKB was inability of 1640 not to overspeed the media above thier rated speed, if you turn the overspeed off then what is the purpose of having BSKB?.

I did a strategy swap with TYG02 and TYG03 using MCSE and then burnt the disc at 16X and got better results than using overspeed to burn my TYG02 at 16X..

Yes but the problem with using MCSE for buring speed increase is you have to each time mess with swapping the writing strat from one media to antherone and that could cause trouble at some point.

agreed. For the time being however it appears the TY swap works better than the overspeed on TYG02 media if you must burn at 16X. Personally my backups are burnt at 8X as the quality is fantastic and the extra minute means nothing . Hopefully another firmware will help. BSKB made a huge jump forward on my TYG03 discs. It almost burns the same as my NEC now.
