    Are there either any deficiencies in OS X, or benefits of Roxio's Toast that make it necessary/beneficial over the built-in burning software (including iDVD)?

    Toast:

    The single most advantegous point for me in Toast:

    ? You don't have to copy the items into the new "disc" first and then burn. This cuts the burnig time in half, very important with DVDs.

    For the most part, the built in disc burner is just fine, but if you want multi-session CDs, VideoCDs, mixed format (Audio+Data) CDs, Buffer Underrun protection, etc. Toast is the way to go.

    A lot of the time the built in apps cover what you need. Toast is however much more powerful and does a lot more.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't Toast let you put 2 hours of video on a 2 hour DVD, where iDVD limits you to 90 minutes?

    I use Toast mainly because I use Jam. I mix cd's and burn with Toast. I like it.
