hey, lets not get off topic, your wasting our time! (sorry im rude because people deserve it)
sohr5238s sucks. I burned princo and enclosed-with-burner-liteon brand, analyzed with kprobe 2 in ltr52327s i already own 7 of,.
for the liteon brand they sent:
C1 max 48, total 61,429
tried 5 different pieces of princo:
burn with sohr, read with 7s:
princo: C1 max 210, total 65,823.
princo: burn and read with 7s: C1 13, total 6123
burn and read with sohr reads its own princo burns differently:
C1 max = 9, total = 1877.
read 7s burn in sohr: C1 max 13, total 3109
I think sohr improved read ability, destroyed write quality. I will be sending back for AOPEN 523252, which is the best burner on the market for write quality plus media compatibility... according to cdrlabs reviews.
and whats with the high status of plexwriters, when the write quality is the lowest of any cd burner across most media! People, the ONLY thing that really matters is WRITE QUALITY and MEDIA COMPATIBILITY. what does it matter if you can write a poor disc 15 seconde faster. talk about give it to me now no matter what the cost mentality of our times!
I'm tired of reading all posts only testing things like how nice it looks, what free software it comes with, if it writes 10 seconds faster, how fast it rips audio, cpu usage (come on, its never anything on a modern computer!), read speed (theyall read "fast), DAE speed (they all read "fast)
and then if at all, put the crucial factor, write quality, buried under all this useless CRAP! Then rate a plextor that burns most media poorly at the top because it says PLEXTOR.. theyre all getting paid to lie I say!
