It appears the PIF clumps near the end of the disc are caused by lots of little speckles. :evil:

First scan:
Staples DVD+R 8X - 50pk spindle
CMC-MAG E01

Burned with:
BenQ DW1640
Firmware: BSLB
SolidBurn On
WOPC On
Burned at 8X

Second Scan:
Staples DVD+R 8X - 50pk spindle
CMC-MAG E01

Burned with:
BenQ DW1640
Firmware: BSOB
SolidBurn On
WOPC On
Burned at 8X


Third Scan:
Staples DVD+R 8X - 50pk spindle
CMC-MAG E01

Burned with:
BenQ DW1640
Firmware: BSPB
SolidBurn On
WOPC On
Burned at 8X

All scaned with BSLB for consistency. It appears that BSLB is still the winner. By far the lowest PIF, and only marginally higher PIE, and no nasty PIE spikes like BSOB.
