What are your thoughts on the Renesas MC-10131 chipset?

The older Sony optical drives used NEC chipsets, however the new ones - like the 7280s and the 5280s - use the Renesas MC-10131. How good are they compared to NEC?

Oh wow, thanks for the tip. The dusty discs were burned with an older drive, so fortunately I don't have to clean off the one I have now. I'll be much more careful how I handle my discs now.

I dont think I have a good enough camera to capture the spots. They are extremely small - and only one or two - but I can definitely notice them. The discs were immaculate before I inserted them in...

Why do I get bad TFT results with Verbatim DVD+R DL discs?

So lately, some of burns have not been quite successful as you can see from the TFT result. What are some potential reason as to why this would happen? Could it be possible because of burning from an...

Verbatim DVD+R DL. Is it serious? Will it affect the quality or longevity - which I doubt - of the burn? I'm only asking cause you are the expert. In fact, almost half of my Verbatim disks (50-60)...

Thanks for your knowledge. I received my Vantec and Samsung and they seem to work pretty well. Off topic, but I noticed some really tiny black dots on a few dvds after I burned them. Is this...

There don't seem to be many choices in enclosures, except for some obvious cheap ones. Are there any more reliable brands besides Vantec?

So I used nero disk speed and tested one of my disks. I verified with my old optical drive and it failed; with the new one, it was successful. Here's the screenshot. What's your verdict?

Quality/Longevity of TDK RITEK-S04-66?

So, like an idiot, I bought 50 of them and 25% cannot be verified by imgburn. My question is: are the ones that were 100% verified as good as the Verbatim MKM 003 in terms of quality and longevity?...
