Sorry but I don't buy the results. Reasons:
- Their "test" is very-very limited, there are more thoroughly tests here in cdfreaks or other forums
- Title says LG4163 but tests shows LG4160.
- They released the test very recently, June 7, 2005, but why 716A fw 1.02, not 1.07.
- Tests not full disk. And the funny thing in DVD+R Write speed test is:
"used the same file as previous for the test, but transformed it into an .iso, which weighed in at 2.54 gigs."
and the comment:
"as you could notice all were successful burning at 16x speeds on 8x media."
LOL, burning 2.54gig won't reach 16x speed!!
