Looks like the "good stuff" is coming out about even. Looks like some of those forums doing comparisons need to run some of the scans themselves before coming to conclusions. Many comparisons are done from input as well as testing though. One thing I've noticed is that dissatisfied consumers are usually more vocal than satisfied ones. That can lead to a skewing of the perspective if one is just looking at consumer input. As consumers we expect quality and don't yell hooray when we get it, but we scream bloody murder when we don't. Anyone have the figures on how low those Quality figures can go before there is a problem with playability and recordability of the media? I love those tests, but I like knowing the range of what's being tested as well. I know the higher the better, but how low can it go before actual problems creep in?
