Out the of the batch I sent in, I had 2 discs fail(which is around 4%.)  
Lately it seems higher, but that was because I was burning them on a system 
with a faster CD burner, but slowing the burn speed back down seems to have 
corrected that problem.  I figure it have around 4% failure rate or so when 
its all over.

Testing is a pain in the rear, but it doesn't take much time to do.  All I do 
is take my XP system down, and boot each disc(which takes around 3-4 minutes 
to do approximately.)   I _barely_ qualify it as testing, as I don't test 
each of the apps, or anything like that... The reason it is a pain, is 
because while I'm burning, normally I'm doing stuff on the XP system.  But 
all in all, I think the testing is a good thing to do...
