Just grabbed a LiteOn 20X LH-20A1L SATA BL02 lightscriber. So far 18X burn with 16.3X read with Sony D21 +R media.
Curiously only a 16x Burn speed w/ MCC004 Verbatims!?! but 16.3X DVD+R read speed. Scans to follow. Anyone know a good 20X media for this big gun? MCSE 126.96.36.199 is only reading the DVD-R/-RW part of the firmware no +R or +RW info given. Ill say this : LEad in times are 50% longer, burn quality isnt as good as I hoped. Samsung SH162L and 182D have better error correction and read qualities, but still not too shabby.
