We start our DVD writing quality measurements with DVD-R media. A variety of different MIDs were selected and burned at the maximum allowed speed. In each of the following pages, you will find detailed information about each disc, the burning and reading procedure as well as the related signal measurements that construct the overall quality picture for each disc.
You can always navigate across to the different MIDs in this review, using the page navigation drop down menu.

Not a good start for the Pioneer drive, since the measurements show POFs (uncorrectable errors) and many PISum8 Errors. The problem area seems to be around or just before the 30mm mark and during the jump up in speed from 6x to 8x (Z-CLV). This change in the laser power most probably caused the spike in the digital error graph, however the disc was still readable.
