Today, we will see how well the Pioneer BDR-2212 can burn the SpeedX BD-R DL 50GB Discs:
This drive can burn these discs at up to 8x. We will be burning it at that speed:
The burning process was successful:
Data verification was also successful:
Here’s how the disc surface look after burning it:
The surface looks smooth altough with the usual dark part of these discs.
We’ll see how well this disc burned in this drive:
From the above scans, we can see that the LG drive scanned the disc better. The Pioneer drive always seem to do a better burn at the 2nd layer than at the first one. Regardless, the LG drive did report higher numbers just at the moment of the layer break. Even through the LiteOn drive scanned worst the first layer, the disc is completely readable with no slowdowns.
The Pioneer BDR-2212 can burn this disc reliably at 8x, but some drives may scan the disc worse than others, possibly due to its different optic mechanisms. An 8x burn takes about 25 to 30 minutes and the data verification takes about the same time. Overall, it takes about an hour to burn and verify these discs.
