Finally we get to BD burning. The max for this drive/media combo is 6x,
but I burnt at 4x across the board for all BD media, to emphasize quality testing.

[B]Disc Quality Scan[/B] (re-done for better scaling a few hours later)
Had so much promise, but ultimately fails right near the end. Reads pretty quickly: 6x on the older LG, and even 12x by the BDR-209M (though there’s a random sharp dip that doesn’t match the ‘bad burn’ area in the DQ, not sure what’s up with that).
The scale on the DQ scan went haywire because of the outlier near the end. I didn’t realize this the first time I capped it, so I did another scan a few hours later. The results are much worse in terms of BIS but slightly better in terms of jitter. Not sure why they should deviate so much even with only six hours in between scans.
In any case, it’s a shame because it’s clear that most of the disc does alright before fucking up the end-game. Looks like this is gonna be a theme…
