I am using the 111D cross flashed to 111L and it has been working great with TY02 +R 8x media. In a seperate thread I started a discussion about the quality of 12x burns with this same media/drive combo and as of yet I can not find any reason not to burn 12x outside my personal fear of quality loss. Having done several dozen 8x and half a dozen 12x burns the quality comparison from one to the other is amazing. Not that I suggest that you burn at 12x, that is your decision, just stating that the 111D@111L and TY02 media seems to work together in exceptional fashion. Also, when crossflashed to the 111L you get automatic bit setting to DVD-ROM for +R disks, DVD-RAM read and write and LabelFlash(limited use in the U.S.) Bonuses for nothing.
On a side note and as a warning, the 111D seems to be a relatively poor scanner to other drives like the Liteys. If you take the price, around $29 U.S. for the Pioneer from NewEgg, you could spend another $30 and get a second drive for scanning and reading the more difficult, ie scratched, disks out there thus getting the best features out of both drives. Plus, you get two drives that way for less than the price of one of the more expensive drives! :bigsmile:
