No mention of what media was used and their CD/DVD read tests are nothing more than some seek times. wtf?

Let's try to look on the bright side...

At least they show the burn times, they COULD have simply stated the burn process completed successfully, and that all drives are equal now :wink:
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
