FUJI DVD+R DL

Postby mikepraba on Fri Sep 16, 2005 3:28 pm

Hi Gang,
What a Surprise!!!!!!. My Plexter 716 found the perfect match. I thought Verbatim DVD*R DL was the best. I still think that was the best media until i tried Fuji Media. I purchased 3PK of fuji DL and perfect burn with Plexter. (I have tried TDK, Dynex,Memorex and all) I burned 3 movies and every single one was good burn and play back was flawless. May be Fuji made this for Plexter drive. I am not sure who made this media for Fuji. Please post if you have similar or different experience. I am thinking about bying a dozen of these tomorrow.

Fuji DVD+R DL is made by Ricoh, as are the TDK-branded ones, so I'm not sure why the Fuji discs worked better than the TDK ones unless they were simply a better batch.

I'll stick with my Verbatim's overclocked to 6x with good stability (or overclocked to 8x with less stability). I've never seen results from Ricoh DVD+RDL that made me believe it was anything more then slightly better then RITEK MID code DVD+RDL.

To me, Ricoh DVD+R DL 2.4X are superior to Ritek's DVD+R DL 2.4X :

With 1620 B7W9 (the changelog adds Ricoh DL support) :

Another one with another 1620 B7W9 :

With the LG GSA-4163B, it's even better. I've seen some amazing scan on every brand of DL (Ricoh, Philips, MKM) but RitekD01 (just average...).

Note : The new BenQ 1640 has some problems with Ricoh DL at layer break, but it's a firmware issue, I think it will be solved in the next firmare. Look here :
