    Got my new Lite-On drive a few days back, really happy with the results! Seriously, the Pioneer drive results freaked me out! ;-)

    you have the latest FW for that drive so your good there.... you might also wanna try cdfreaks and look for the over burn fw for that drive...

    I have already had a look at the firmware on CDFreaks. Flashed the drive using the C0deKing firmware with the Enhanced Online Hyper Tuning option. I only burn my discs at 4x or 8x, never higher, that's why i felt that overburn was not required. Am I right about this? Is there any other benefit of using the custom firmware with all enhancements?

    i think it is personal prefference tbh. i have it on all 3 of my litey's only use it on 2 of them..

    you have good burners and good media (TY) IMHO you shouldnt have to worry about burning @4x. @8x on them TY's you will get excellent burns. i have even burnt a few 8x+r TY's @12x and gotten 98% quality score.. and the disc is flawless...

    with the technology that is out there now i dont see the need to burn slower than 8x(other than personal choice) the drives and media are alot better than even a year ago. so the slow days are long gone...now dont get me wrong i dont think there is a need to burn at max speed or even faster other than testing and playing around... which we all do..

    give a few of them TYs a try @10-12x speed burn and see for yourself.you will be suprised at the outcome.

    I don't know if these verb's are the old or new style, they are the blue and pink type packaging, the pink to you might be orange, its more pink than orange to me, but I think we are talking about the same thing.

    I have bought these before about a year ago from officemax for the same price, regularly they sell for 35 bucks for a 50 pack, last year I bought eight 50 packs for the $15 price, its been a year since they put it on this sale price again, I have never had a single coaster from last years purchase if that helps any.

    I went back again today, they had 6 more, I took all six, I asked the salesman if they will be stocking any more he said this was the last of them, so that makes it a total of 10 packs for me, that should last another year I hope.

    Yeah I don't use -r's either, just started as a preference years ago, since it never gave me any type of problems I just stuck with the +r's

    Well since I started with - R that is my preference. However I've had no problems with either + or - R formats. I do burn more - than + though.

    true true true. i myself was a +r person only. only trying a few -r's here and there. a friend sent me 100 -r printable verbs and they have been awesome!!!!!!! i have about 15 or so of them left. the next batch of disc i buy will be the -r's. preferably some 8x-r Ty's.

    cincyrob- Yes I too Started out as an -R person !!! I tend to prefer The DVD+R's So I can Booktype them With My Liteon's Now & my BenQ 1655 in my previous Computer! Though The whole compatability issue isn't as bad as it once was ? With Newer DVD players Being Able to play nearly anything round with a hole in it short of a Bagle or Doughnut ??? Though The Higher end units sometimes seem to have more problems with Roll your Own ( BURNED ) disc Then the Cheaper ( ahem !!! Less Costly Units !!!) Go figure ? In any case I tend to use DVD+R's For my Movies and -R's for the Grandkids, Family ect ... And Assuming we're talking apples to apples here ( Comparable quality media ) I have'nt really noticed any great diffrence ! Media quality is more of an issue IMHo as long as you stick with quality stuff your gonna GET'R Done Ciao !!!
