thanks for the info. I ordered one anyway (to check DVD burns for PI/PO in addition to my Plextor 712, BenQ DW1600, LiteOn 851S, LG 4480B and Optorite DD0401).
I think I'll keep on using LiteOn and Plex Premium for DAE though, I trust your findings.
BTW, I sold my BTC DVD-rom due to lack of space (no more room in my controllers nor my case), but I already feel bad about it. It was really good in scratched disc reading. Reasonably fast, not the best c2 accuracy, but excellent error concealment (and this wasn't even the latest model).
I'll report back on SD-M1802 + PI/PO (or is it PI/PIF, hard to say yet) results when I get it and have it tested.
great! If you have time to do the Abex tests, I'm really interested in seeing them myself.
