In order to test the writing quality and readability of the burned media we
used two readers and two software packages:
- LiteON SOHD-167T with patched firmware being
able to read DVD5 up to 16X CAV and DVD9 up to 10X CAV. For the trasnfer rate
tests we used the latest Nero CDSpeed version.
- Plextor PX-712A with the latest available firmware. For scanning the disc
we used the latest PlexTools version at 2X CLV reading speed, BURST
mode, with middle accuracy.
In general, a "perfect" disc should have a smooth reading curve,
very low PIE/POE and zero POF error rates. Most times, even though a disc
has very low PIE/POE error rates, the reading curve may not be smooth and may
include speed drops. Due to the fact that we oversped the reading capabilities
of the LiteON
such drops are expected, especially near the outer area of the disc.
The measurements below should be taken not as the absolute criteria
of the burning quality but as an indication level.
16X DVD-R Writing Speed
The DVR-A08 with TDK's 8X media reached 16X with very low PIE error rates.
No POF errors were reported, while the POE error rates were also rather low.
The SOHD-167T slowed its reading speed near the end of the disc indicating
a very good performance.
