Thanks for the look at this drive, Ian. Please keep us posted on the Lightscribe bug.
There's one relict left from the previous review: The GSA-H22N handled scratched discs relatively well.
Look like this drive is an excellent reader
. It declasses the other drives shown in audio extraction.
I watched a few scenes from Transformers: The Movie...
Do you ever tire of this movie?
You use it in every review...
The CD-Speed scans with the BenQ showed some peculiar results. There are systematic spikes in the PI and PIF counts in all the +R media shown. They don't show on the -R scans. Do these correlate with features in the writing curve, e.g. OPC dips?
Also noteworthy is that the jitter shown by the BenQ is ca. 2% lower for -R media than for +R. I've seen this with DVD-Scan results too, so this isn't a peculiarity of BenQ scans.
