Ok, i've done some serious probing.
Behold the results and please do comment.
I bought two of these without having any solemn expectations.
Though certified for 24X writings i wrote Audio on them at 24X.
Not too good..
Next up i wrote another Precision. This time it was written with data and at 24X:
Well, at least no C2's..
Now, i've found some Kodaks and bought some 2 cdrs.. I have hoped to see them supply the real dough.
The label says "Kodak Ultima 80". It also mentions having real gold.. Whatever. The disc was certified for 24X and integrates InfoGuard protection system. On the back of the disc i've found "Made In Ireland".
I wrote threw in some Audio files and burned at 16X:
I felt a bit peevish with this burn.. I've hoped it to be a defected disc
So i wrote another cd. This time data, at 24X
And to whom it may concern, the third cd did not differ..
Either the cds were kept in some laborious condition or they really are seamy.. And as far as i could tell they were kept rather neatly (They originally came from a 10-pack. I just asked three for examination purposes).
And from the bitter to the sweetest.
After the traumatic Kodak semblances i went out and got some SilverLine Cdrs and Some TDKs. If you had read my previous posts you could witness the stupefacient quality of these oriented cdrs. I bought the same brand but this time they were 700MB and certified for 40X.
The ATIP is, to my jolliness, identical:
I Burned Audio and Data on it at 40X even though Nero allowed 52X.
All seems well:
Next were the TDK. Certified for 16X, the ATIP results have a rather nice flavour to them:
Shibby! We got TY in Israel!
I burned the TDK with the same content as i did with the SilverLine (The Doors - Greatest Hits) in order to have a fair fight.
BUT, even though Nero says they're compatible for 40X i preferred writing them at their "true speed":
Next up, i run both cds through CD SPEED:
By the way, the TY was written at 16X at 4:00 Min.
The SilverLine took 4:01. Long live TY..
