I'm new on the forum and just had a couple of questions about the DVD burning future? I'm planning on replacing my Pioneer A104 (oooolld school) in May, and right now I'm deciding between the NEC 2500A and the Pioneer 107.
However, will there be faster burners out in May or close to that date? i.e. 12x/16x? Either +r or -r?
Also I've noticed its impossible to find good and relatively cheap 8x media, so when will the media companies catch up? How long is the 'lag' historically between new writing speeds and new storage media? I generally use Princo discs (DVD-R), and have never had a problem, with over 100 burns using the 104, so I might just stick to the 107.
Any replies would be helpful!
