Burn time notes: The Liggy & Dee 16x burn was only 17 seconds faster than the LG's 12x burn.
The LG's 8x burn was 2 minutes faster than the Liggy & Dee burn. The official NEC firmware was faster than L&D in every instance also, but by tiny amounts.
Conclusion: This media & batch has problems compared to other scans available on TY media. But the LG drive does better than the NEC drive with it.
