I am and I do,
BUT: That test was done with, from today's point of view, obsolete firmwares and, in the case of verbatim 16x media, beta-state media... it is just out of date. For example, in their test, the NEC only wrote at 8x speed to maxell 8x -r media. Reason: firmware 2.16 .... their pioneer a08 had firmware 1.10, and their TY 8x +R media appearently was b0rked (it didn't work on any drive at 16x, which totally contradicts all my own scans and the scans of many other people)
In the test you are refering to, there was even much more wrong, e.g.:
They suggest to write ritek g05 at 2x in the lg 4160b because the result was bad at 4x. Problem: LG 4120B/4160B/4163B drives don't support 2x speed on 8x media.... and there was a bunch of errors which could make people think that the test was not done properly in some cases...
