TDK Scratch Proof DVD-Rs, part 2: Test results!

Postby MonsterMan on Thu Sep 28, 2006 4:23 pm

Rated Speed: 8x.
MID: TTH01
Made In: Luxembourg

BenQ 1655, BCHB, 8x:
Image

The spike at the end kinda worries me, but it's not bad. Me like so far :)

More results & Lite-On scans as I get 'em done.


Unlike the Imation "Forcefield" discs, fingerprints seem to stick like glue to these :(
But that scratch proofing works pretty darn good! Far, far better than the ForceField discs (which got scratched after I dropped one on the floor. Landed on carpet, picked right up, and scratched :evil: ).
Gonna order more...
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

But it has 815 PI Failures! You better throw that disc away!

Sorry.. inside joke between Dolph and I. :wink:

Had a scan of some Verbatium 16x media burned at 8x on my 1620 with a PIF total of 9.

Forgot to back up my media tests when I reformated though, and haven't seen anything close since. Oh well.


Same disc as above, scanned with Lite-On 165H6S HS0E.

NOTE
This scan was done after my imprompto scratch-resistince test. Disc was not badly damaged, but had a few small scuffs on it. So don't read to much into this scan.

Image

Also, better to use KProbe or CDSpeed for scanning with Lite-Ons? CDSpeed would be more consistent for me, but if the results are different...

Edit: Hmm...guess the actual scan would help.

Pioneer 111D, FW 1.29, at 12x:

Again with the spike at the end. Gotta try these at 8x in this drive...

KProbe scan:

They seem decent enough. I'd suggest running a transfer rate test with the BenQ, though, because that PIE mountain *could* be a sign of high-speed readability issues :wink:

Hmm. BenQ 1620 reads DVD-Rs at 8x max. Did not know that (I have used the 1620 for two things since I bought it: burning, and scanning).

Anyway, here's the transfer rate graph from the 1620, for the disk burned in the Pioneer:

You can remove the riplock with MCSE if you deem fit :D

Transfer curve from the Lite-On. NOTE: I installed the read-speed unlock patched firmware from this post on. So this is a truer stress test, reading at 16x:

Image

Oh yeah...don't get much better than that 8)

I don't have a need to remove the riplock from the 1620. That is the 1st & probably last time I'll read a disc in that drive other than with CDSpeeds quality check :)

but if you do remove the riplock with MCSE you could do Disc Quality scans @ 16x ! :P

No label. They're "raw" discs, silver surface. Spindle label says "For use with Prism Printers and Silkscreen Printers."

Linky.

Now I need to come up with some more cash to grab some more.

This was the first time I've seen these discs in any form, anywhere. They work great, so I can deal with the higher cost...
