I honestly can't entirely agree with that. I have a HUGE array of DVD writers at my disposal, as well as a HUGE collection of media from a large number of different manufacturers to work with.
My experience over the past 20 years has shown that the ideal writing speed for any type of CD or DVD media depends on multiple factors, including the quality of the media, the design and working condition of the writer as well as support for the desired media by the drive manufacturer.
The only time that I would resort to writing discs at low speed is if I'm using low-speed media such as 8X CD-R or 1X-2X DVD-R. Based on my experience, writing 48X-52X CD-R at low speeds (i.e. 1X-8X) will always result in pain, particularly on more modern drives, as will writing 16X DVD+/-R at 1X or 2X on ANY writer. The main advantage of writing at moderate speed (i.e. the highest-possible speed where a CLV writing strategy is used) is that you will end up with a disc with low, consistent jitter across its entirety. Modern CD/DVD dyes are not designed for low writing speeds in mind, and drive manufacturers put more effort into improving high speed writing performance as opposed to low speed writing performance on such media.
With a bit of homework, you can choose a good writer and good media and not have to worry too much about writing quality writing at moderate speeds

I was think if you often burn with 8x and above it would spoil the driver. I had 5 years old iHAS 324 Y and from began I always burn at 4x but recently I decided to burn use 8x speed.
I just had burn around 20 dvd and everything looks good but suddenly colorful circle came out on every dvd. Then get error during burn process. I changed back burn to 4x and there are no colorful circle. After done few burn it suddenly can't detect any dvd.
Now I was use new driver and always use slow speed to burn. The speed of 4x and 6x were ideal for burn dvd.

New to the forum and thank you very much for the post. I always thought I should be writing the disks at the slowest speed to produce a high quality backup.
Now I can save more time and burn more disks.
