I've been thinking about replacing my BTC drive with a NEC 2500A because of the good burns it's able to do when verified with a liteon drive using kprobe.
If I were to get this drive though, how would I verify my burns? I know there are other tools such as Nero's dvd speed tester and also dvdinfopro, but do those speed graphs really mean much?
Example: one wants lower than 280 pi and 35 po in kprobe. If a disk is over those ratings, will Nero or dvdinfopro show problems reading a disk (slowdowns)?
I've seen lots of talk about kprobe scans and what are good and bad, but not much about using other scanners.
Here are some pics of my burned disks:
