I’ve had relative success with RITEK F16 in LiteOn drives, and potentially in a Samsung and a Pioneer. They flop horribly in an LG drive [E40L], failing to even be finalized at speeds above 4x.
Comparably, all my drives can deal with SONY D21 at no lower a speed than 8x for usable burns. My LiteOn drives occasionally seem to find a way to produce a bad burn on them, but this has only been “recently” and with only 1 batch. All other burns have been fine unless I screwed it up.
If I just wanted a disc I knew should be reliable, I’d go for SONY D21 [or the -R variant, SONY16D1].
