Got me. I guess it’s a free for all this is why i asked my original question.
Yeah…it looks like it’s a case of “If your drive has a MTK chipset, and can scan–report proper C1/C2/PIE/PIF–then scan away!”. You can definitely see me turning to TRTs these days, especially since my SOHW-1693S is proving to be finicky at 16x.

I just got this burner today and let me just say I really, really hate Asus. I had the DRW-1814 sata model and had to return it because it was incompatible with CloneDVD2. Well, this new one has the same stupid problem!!! If you try to make a 1:1 copy onto any DL media, it states the source is too large to fit onto the disk, even though it clearly isn’t. Oh well, back to the egg it goes!!!
I suspect that the slowdown at the end of the 20X burns is due to ensure the best write quality on the 16X media that report being capable of 20X writes.
Just a thought since the write cure is definitely 20X.
Panasonic TYG03 burnt at 20X with Imgburn :
Panasonic TYG03 burnt at 12X with Nero CD/DVD speed :
This media burns better at higher speeds
I don´t know the differences between L1 and L1T, so I post it here
