I mean, except for testing and a few features, what do you use casually? I am definitely one who does not care to post my results here afraid that my Kprobe errors rates might or might not be 1337 enough by a few points. I do not care much about these in-depth tests, I think there is more to that than just errors rates. I use the Pioneer DVR-108 for my burns, as it has got the feature that appeals the best to me: some of the best writing quality, especially on DVD-Rs. In fact, I still never burned a single DVD+R and I burned a ton of discs. There are other shortcomings of course, but the other benefits, for which there are a lot, make so that I use it for virtually all my burns. As for media, I use TDK, Taiyo Yuden and Ritek DVD-R, depending on what I can get on sale at a good price. I just got a BenQ DW1620, which i intend to use very few and for a few unique features only.
