Now it appears the burn times have increased, but the WOPC is not doing as much either. But perhaps calibration times have increased? I haven't tried it out yet since I'm still too busy with other things right now...
Keep in mind that this is a very tough interpretation I wouldn't make any comment about that the WOPC doesn't do much either.
While on some stuff it doesn't seem to do anything there are also reports of people that now can burn HongKong with media which they couldn't burn befor and more of that sort of stuff. I have seen a few burns on cheap media showeing significant less PIF errors.
Problem here is the quality fluctuations with all media and yes that includes big names as TY so I wouldn't just make a conclusion yet if they fixed things or screwed up.
But I have to say that's it's more the other way arround if you look at time and quality. Quality seems to have increased but times have increased even more.
There might be a dissapointing thing dual layer verbatim media now seems to burn at 2.4x (the speed C't suggested) however the quality seems to have gone down hill or are we looking at some terrible batches of MKM dual layer media which are spotted more and more these days.
