    the 2 sony's would give you a 99 score
    no rounding up from 99
    100% must be pure

    when I first start and burn with nero, I lost alot of blanks ( if that you mean by coasters), after I learn how to do rip with dvdd to hard drive, use shrink turn in to iso image and then burn with dvdd and lately imgburn I have not lost at all I mean the one I lost because I try to get to the very edge, one was freeze i guess I could say 98-99 percent with vertibal either R+ or R-, I lost two disc so far after burn to blanks with dvdd or imgburn

    I voted 99% because now I use only quality media, and the occasional coasters are due to a bad media in the box (can happen ) or to a strange experiment changing writing strategy on my firmwares .

    When I first started to do burnings (with a liteon 811) I was totally noob, and my first 6 discs were all coasters (3 Ç for each disc ).

    After a couple of days I discovered CDFreaks, and from then quality of my burnings was absolutely good, except for a couple of princo and other low quality media (at this time I was a noob trying to learn).

    Anyway when I want to do a burning to keep (I repeat, except experiments) I use quality media and set all settings on my burners in optimal way for the media I use, so % of coasters is very very low.

    In the past year I haven't had any coasters (learned to use good/compatible media). In the beginning lots of coasters due to non-compatible/cheap media.

    I never had a coaster ever and started June 2003. I was lucky to find the best media straight away - Ricoh +R then Ritek -R G04. I only got 25 of the Ricoh's as they were ú35 for 25 at the time. I now get 175 Riteks for the same price of the Ricoh's.

    I cant handle bad media, it just erks me so i stick with Verbatim DVD-R. They're da best ive found n not too expensive. TDK used to have there disks made at the same factory that verbatim do but they changed to a cheaper one and da disk quality dropped. I still hav cheap spindle around for temp tv recordings tho..

    Oh Ello evrybody! This is my first post! yay lol

    I voted 99 since I started using Tayio Yuden. Damn, I wish I had discovered them sooner.

    I think that 100% is not an objective value, because there is always the possibility to create a coaster.

    A box can contain a bad batch of media (I have a box of 25 RICOHJPNR03 brand Ricoh, about 1/3 of these discs give me very bad results and 3 coasters, but another box of these same discs of the same Ricoh brand and mediacode give me very good results).

    Moreover, a power failure (remember: don't burn in stormy days ) during a burning can also create a coaster.

    So that's impossible that anyone can obtain a 100% of success.

    Several members have a 100% success rate, as I would if I hadn't bought
    them durn clone Yuden's, of course I define coaster as anything below
    40-60QS. With my TY's G01,02 and03 out of 205 disks burned I had 205
    non-coasters, including several tests overburned at 2x rated speed.
    My ritek R04's alto not producing any coasters had several burns in the grey area below 60QS.
