The quality scan features reported PIFs as sum8-values rather than sum1, thus could not be directly compared with the LiteOn or ECMA standard guidelines, although different drives did always vary with their opinions of the quality of discs. As the writing speed is increased, signal loss becomes the key cause for the significant decrease in writing quality. In my search for belts, I found some listings on eBay for individual belts, but at fairly high prices but of an inappropriate dimension for this particular drive. Of course, there are a number of other nifty features which you cannot see. Unlike other drives which preset the writing power before the actual writing of data, the WOPC II Walking Optimal Power Control algorithm evaluates the writing quality constantly and adjusts the writing power accordingly in order to ensure the best possible writing quality over the entire disc.

As a result of trying to fix it, I found a very cheap packet of rubber belts from eBay and decided to benq dw1640 it a go. This means there is a high chance that the writing characteristics seen in past models might not be repeated benq dw1640 time round.
