Finally tried out 8X DL burning a little while back with a Pioneer 111D, as the BenQ 1650/5 won't/can't do better than 2.4X with MKM-001-00 :swear: Here's the result:

Here's a comparison on a burn scanned on both a BenQ1655 & the Plex 716 it was burned on.

Appears the Plex can read it's own burn fairly well. Strangely enough, the Plex does each check as an independant scan ie the Pi, Pif, & jitter were independant scans/reads, took a long time.

The speeds you got on your 111D are almost identical to the speeds I get on my 110D Pioneer for DLs. Set at 8x, it averages 6.01, 6.02, with peaks about 8.1, 8.2.

 

The scans you put up for the burn at 6x looks very much like the scans I get for disks burnt in the 110D at 8x.

 

Basically, in the scans I've done, 16x with single layers and 8x with DLs rarely get anywhere near their supposed maximums. With the 16xers I average around 10ish and with the 8x on the DLs, as I've said, its a little above 6.

 

For whatever reason, reaching those manufacturer rated "maximums" just doesn't happen. The speed difference between 8x and 16x single layers (both formats) is 60 to 90 seconds in favor of the latter.

 

So, in my opinion, it really isn't worth spending extra money to buy 16x media even Taiyo 16x. As both Grain and I have observed, we get better scans when we slow the max down to 8x or 12x. And with the Pioneer and the Plex the 8x media should burn at 12x*--so you're going to achieve about the same average burn time/speed as with the 16x media (again, both formats).

 

Plus, to reiterate, for whatever reason, the scans look better when the speed is set to the lower numbers.

 

*That's for Taiyos.

 

(BTW: As I'm sure you know, the Plex comes with its own extensive set of testing tools.

 

I've run comparative scans with Nero's CD/DVD Speed tool and there's quite a bit of difference between its scans and DIP's.)
