although the CD testing on the LiteON DVD burner is REALLY inaccurate!

Not sure what that is supposed to prove, most of us already know you can't compared scans from different drives.

Plextor premium: very good writer, but on good discs it's easily beaten by the Lite-On LTR-52246S when it comes to the amount of C1 errors on a disc. The advantage (if you could call it that since it actually makes it slower) is that it slows down the write-speed VERY easy on many discs and thus giving lower amount of C1 errors on some types of discs.
Lite-On LTR-52246S: Best writer I've had for most types of CD-R discs when you speak about the amount of C1 errors. But there is a few types of CD-R discs where the amount of C1 errors is sky-high at the end, the plextor premium do not have this problem as it slows down the write speed much easier than the Lite-On.
And do not compare scans from q-check with K-probe scans! My comments is based on scans of discs written by both drives and then scanned and compared in the same program.
To my experience the LTR-52246S have better write quality than the plextor premium on about 70-80% of the discs, for the rest 20-30% the plextor premium is the winner.
Can't comment on the LTR-52327S as I don't have it.

The quality on the Premium is much higher than that on the LTR-52327S. That is both writing quality...
why not show for all to see how you have reached the oh-so promising ordainment of Plextor

Oh please, no! All we'll get is a rash of scans on discs burned at lord knows what speed on the Plex, compared with 52x (real 52x) burns on the LiteOn. Not to mention the Plex scans at 24x speed. Just let it drop, most readers can tell the difference between BS and evidence.
Noted your scans, but let's face it, they are comparing apples and oranges.
Let's try to compare drives that have some semblence of similarity.
I chose the LiteOn 52327S and the 411S. This is a disc that was burned in the 7S at 52x, no slowdowns, using QS0B firmware. I have scanned it in each drive , chosing 32x scan speed as a happy medium.
In the 401/411 drives, the large single spikes of C2 errors are some sort of a reading glitch that is not related to the quality of the disc. But just looking at the C1 counts, the difference is not significant. The disposition and patterns of C1 are very similar, only the total numbers are different. If you take all the "1" value C1 from the 7S scan and add them to the 411 scan, you get very much the same scan.
The only thing any of these scans really tell us is that the 401/411 is a very good reading drive for CDR.
