It isn’t the fourth one.

Hehe, when people use “wicked” to discribe equipment it usually is the 4th definition.

But back to the problem. The difference is probably because the DVD you’re testing was a marginal burn and the LG is just showing of it’s better DVD error correction skills. The LG, despite being a slower reader does have excellent DVD error correction capabilities that lets it read marginal discs without slowing down like a lot of other drives will.

Well, at least the average speed was same.

Nice language. purskenopeus. lol

Classical bad burn! The Toshiba should read every “good” DVD with full speed. The 4163 dislikes most media. You can expect good 8x results only when using TY 8xDVD±R and never expect good 16x results.

Once again kaborka, we must cross swords. My LG does just fine on all my media and particularly well on MCC: see the scan here.
