The ASUS DRW-1814BLT burns this media very well and as you can see the read curve is smooth.

PIF errors are a little high for 16X TY DVD-R; most new burners do a better job with this highly regarded media.  Note that the small dip in the read curve is not uncommon when reading DVD-R media with the BenQ drive and does not represent any problem with the burn.

High PIF and PIE levels at the very end of the burn suggest that the DRW-1814BLT did not do so well with this media.

The drive produced a good burn on our TDK (TTG02) media with a good read curve.


Summary

The ASUS DRW-1814BLT did a good job with our test media.  The specifications state that the drive will write DVD–R at 18X, however we were not able to burn any of our DVD-R media at 18X.  Perhaps this will be addressed in upcoming firmware updates.

Summary

The ASUS DRW-1814BLT produces good quality results on both the 4X and 6X DVD-RW media we tested with it.
