Yes of course
Although I've always suspected that in the case of errors "running away" in the last 10-15% of the disc, the bad strategy is only a contributing factor and there is usually an element of media error in it as well.
Example: "proper" Prodisc S03 vs "Bulkpaq" B-grade version of same. On a Pio 106/7 or NEC2500A, both discs are perfect and perform similarly. On the 105 or LiteOn 851s on the other hand the more expensive S03s also perform perfectly, but the B-grade discs have problems right at the end.
Not 100% sure why, but I think perhaps newer drives/firmware are just more capable of dealing with discs with manufacturing faults at the end successfully, more than just write strategy on its own, in the Prodisc example the write strategy is and should be the same for the good and slightly bad media.
