Allow me to address your concerns...
Although it is now up to the media forum mods to decide (as I have no powers outside of Recording Hardware), I do not feel that is reason enough to put the thread in the NEC forum. There are other manufacturers that do not support PI/PIF scanning, and I do not see how the needs of a LG user looking for a PI/PIF scanner are any different than that of a NEC user. And because the question is more along the lines of what drive is a better PI/PIF scanner, this could apply the owner of any drive. For example, a LiteOn owner might be curious to see if it may be worthwhile to get a BenQ to see how well the results correspond. So I stand by my decision to move this out of the NEC forum. To sum it up, my feeling is that the criteria for something to be in one of manufacturer-specific subforums is not that it be something can apply to a particular manufacturer's drive, but that it be something is specific to a particular manufacturer's drive. The first condition is necessary, but only the second condition is both necessary and sufficient.
As for its move into the testing/identifying forum, this decision is more open to debate, I think. In practice, it seems that general issues about PI/PIF and PI/PIF scanning have made their way into this forum, despite its "software" label (which I have learned to ignore :p), and thus, I felt that it would be more appropriate.
