Just starting to read it:

My quick observations:
- still only one drive (and LiteOn at that) doing the scanning
- still think that errors are on the disc (ref. page 3)
+ scans twice on the same disc / same reader (I think they thought two programs make it more trustworthy, when it's in fact two test runs that make it more trustworthy).
Also, I'm a bit disappointed with things like these still doing the rounds:
"In case you don’t know or have forgotten, the scanning of the surface of a disc can be done without problems in drives on MediaTek chipsets."
When in fact Mediatek chipset has some bugs in it, Mediatek dvd-rom drives can be downright unreliable and LiteOn drives are known to produce misleadingly low scan results (when the aim is to consider OVERALL compatibility and not just compatibility in that LiteOn drive).
