Maybe think more along the lines of .... If the liteon spits out a bad burn now, the media is probably very bad, and lastability will be s@#t too.
If the drive burns anything without any real feedback, then chances are that several months down the track, you may very well lose some important stuff on cheap DVDR's
At least you find out NOW that your stuff isn't gonna last long (on that particular media)
