Here we go.
Yesterday I got the CMC disc's Dolphinius Rex sells and which are good according to him.
It looks like he really stands after the product he sells.
Now let me first tell you the following I have debated with many online stores about there home brands and the quality of the disc's.
Never before would a online-store let me test there store brand media profesionally except for Dolphinius Rex store. So even if the disc's might turn out bad I think still that Enovation Media at least should be respected for having the guts to test there media the profesional way.
Now there was a lot of debate over this "A" grade CMC Magnetics disc's. As I promised you I should try to do some serious testing. Profesional style and not WSES/ UDM. So serious BLER based on complete C1/C2 errors counted when we are talking about BLER and I am proud to say that this will happen.
In a couple of days the disc's are going to be tested. We have decided to use 3 different burners for the three disc's.
To check how good the media is.
The following 3 burners are used in combination with NERO.
1 Plextor 24/10/40A (firmware 1.04) - 24x
2 Yamaha CRW-F1 (firmware 1.0D)- Yes I really want to make sure that our Yamaha fans/moderators can't complain that it still are poor disc's because I didn't burn one disc on a Yamaha and there opinion is based on other CMC Media of Cremation and other crap brands. So this one is for you guys.
One point on the Yamaha I thought of using OWSC for the yamaha but if people think it is better to choose rated speed then I could burn it at the rated 32x speed. Just post your opinion here. In 2 days the disc's will be burned so be quick.(or be dead[}:)])
3 Lite On 48125W (firmware VS08) -32x I know people would blame me if I didn't use a Lite On drive so here it is.
Dolphinius Rex was also nice enough to mail me one of the disc's with the DST ATIP. This disc will be burned at the rated 12x with my Plextor 24/10/40A and will also be tested.
I am only sorry to report that I can't do an advanced aging test. So I can only check them on writing quality of course I could test them my own outside test. Which seems to come quite close to the profesional aging tests. At least the last time that was. But based on one test I may not say that you can use it as advanced aging test.
So stay tuned for the truth about these disc's. Test results will be posted here like I promised.
I really hope that CMC finally made a good product but my expectations are not high about it. But we will find out in a couple of days.
