OK, then I'll make sure to burn DL discs on the Pioneer. Right now the benchmark for the BenQ (all smooth) looks a helluva lot better than the jaggy one from the Pioneer (3 dips to 2X and one to 6X in the first half of the movie). Any ideas why this is so for the single-layer DVD-R media? Could it be the computer itself and maybe I should run the Pioneer benchmark again? Nope, ran the Pioneer benchmark again tonight and the same thing. Also, the BenQ beats the Pioneer in everything in the Disc Quality and Advanced Disc Quality tests. I still need to run the ScanDisc though, but it's looking like the BenQ will be moved to the SkaarjMasterDuo and I'll be moving the Lite-On CD burner from my Mom's house to the Dragonslayer computer and getting her a DVD burner. I'll use the BenQ for CD-R and single-layer DVD burning and the Pioneer for dual-layer DVD burning.
