I've been meaning to add my 2 cents for a while. These are mainly things I've already mentioned at various times.
- I'd like to see some quality scans with rewritable discs too (CD and DVD)
- If a drive is capable of doing some kind of quality test (C!/C2, PI/PIF, jitter, beta or whatever) it would be nice to see how it does with some standard discs. I elaborated on this in this post
- I really appreciate the detailed media tests (KProve, transfer rates, BenQ+CD-Speed). But as we all know, not all (DVD) media is burned at it's rated speed. The actual speed at which a drive did the burn are tabulated earlier in the reviews, but you have to keep scrolling back and forth to get at the information. So it would be really useful to repeat this in the caption to the scans. For example, in the latest test of the NEC ND-3520A:
RiDATA 8x DVD+R
I really appreciate the continuity in your tests. It makes it possible to compare current drives with those that were discussed years ago!
