This is pretty freaking bad already. I’m actually somewhat shocked. The iHBS112 and the Pioneer are to be commended for staying at 8x (mostly, even they had red zones) - so possible points for the Pioneer there, in terms of being able to read crappily-burnt media quickly? The oldest drive of them all, the GGC-H20L, had the most problems with it and could not complete the access times portion of the test (this happened twice with this disc). For me the fact that the burning drive couldn’t read it’s own burn without issue is the most damning.
Two samples, same reason as past two posts.

Results slightly worse second time, bad all around, and in the places you might expect. I’ve heard nothing but good about MKM 001 and 003, my reaction to this is wtf??? As for the Pioneer…
