I knew they were the same. I just posted the link again, to cdfreaks, because all the pictures were in one post. On the Chinese web site there was a picture on page 3 and then page 4. I didn't want anyone to miss the pictures on page 4. I home you understand
The Z-CLV is odd. Could you or someone else, get into contact with Pioneer and find out what's going on?
I can't believe the writing quality is so good for just coming out. I think it took a few firmwares for the Pioneer 108d to have good writing quality. Good writing at the beginning is really cool. I know it was only on 2 brands of media. Hopefully it will do good on others.
I think the Ty 8x media was burned at 12x. If so that was a really good scan. Even if somone burned it at 8x, that would be an awesome scan, but it being burned at 12x makes it even better
The 16x MCC disc burned at 12x looked good too. I know it's not 16x, but I would be happy with burning at 12x if the write quality was good any day, over a burn at 16x that may not be as good as the 12x burn.
I care about write quality. I think too much emphasis is put on speed. Say, if a burner was the fastest burner, but had terrible write quality, wouldn't it be better to have the slower burner with the better write quality? What do you guys think about this statement?
