We have the data collected so far from VSO's database, which include the
results from only two weeks. The current results refer to the period between
the 4th ~ 10th April
2005 and we plan to update the article next week. Lets start!
please read the following statement:
"...The following stats are based on real burn report using CopyToDVD
and BlindWrite, because of the privacy protection, the data is not grouped
and analyzed per user, so please understand that a small number of bad
drives or computer configuration can change the results.
RATIO value is a complex calculation between the number of reports and
the number of burns successfully completed. Nevertheless a media burnt successfully
doesn't mean the result can be played correctly in a dvd home player, or
by computer devices, so understand this data needs to be understood by
expert people. Ratio = 1.0 means perfect result (on a write completion point
- Most Popular Manufacturer
The results are very interesting, According to the information we got so far,
LG seems to be the most popular manufacturer at 25.49%,
with NEC following next at 19.12%. LiteON is the third most preferred
and Pioneer comes fourth with 11.12%.
Let's see which brand is considered as the most reliable. LiteON takes
first place with a 92 ratio (success/uses), while NEC comes second with a ratio
of 91. LG and Plextor share third place with 90. Notice here that
ratio illustrates that the burner can successfully complete the burning process,
which is irrelevant of burning quality.
