Yep, thats OK for this actually media. But if compared with this MID before 2010 most ppl, including me, would say it´s bad

-R from Verbatim had mostly higher PIF total than +R, at least it´s my experience

I don´t trust the Pioneer as scanner, these results are a bit optimistic

From the standpoint of the Pioneer those results are correct, it is better reader with very good OPU so it triggers the error correction system less often.

Comparing other scans from Prodisc or RITEKF16 media I made with the Pioneer drive this MCC media has 4-5 times more errors.

It seems that at 12x drive runs much quieter/less vibrations with this media

The Samsung-drives I use (222AB/BB, 224DB/GB) seems to be very sensitive with some kinds of media. The 222 are in general more quiet than actual LG/LiteOn-drives but with some media the Samsung makes noises like hell, LG/LiteOn stay at nearly the same level like with other media

Sometimes I´m not sure if a better OPU is responsible for much lower error-rates or the chipset of the drive don´t exactly handle it and give back wrong values
