It's depressing finding good media for this thing. I went back on Thursday and bought the Verbatim DVD+R's 8x and got home to find it was not on the Plextor's PX712-A's recommended media list. The 4X +R/-R's were on the list. The 8X -R's were on the list, ...... but the 8X +R's that I bought were NOT on the list.
I emailed Plextor to see if it was a typo but nope, they replied:
The 4x verbatim and the 8x verbatim are made by different companies. The 8x did not test as well and therefore are not listed as recommended.

Strangly, however after failing the FE/TE test in Plextools, it looked super in the Beta and Jitter test and I 'think' ok in the PIE/POF test.
Still, not being on the recomended media list I may end up taking it back.
Wow, so far the only tests I've done that were like this drive should be like was with Taiyo Yuden.
But, .... that beef brisket is really-really cool!
