[QUOTE=John_Qyoo_Public;2629664]I haven’t kept up with what’s current in burning tech in years.
I’m looking for info on burning DVD-5s and DVD-9s, not Blu-Ray or other “exotic” stuff.
What are typical burning speeds? Typical burn times for (95% full) DVD-5s and DVD-9s at those speeds (I’m talking a nice, ready image file like an ISO that’s ready to burn)? Typical verification times? Typical prices for buying DVD-5 and DVD-9 media in bulk that will burn at those speeds?
Feel free to recommend good hardware and media choices these days.[/QUOTE]
Burn and verify speed may vary mainly on the size of the burn, and also on other factors.
If all goes as planned you will need close to 5minutes to verify a DVD and 8-10 minutes if you burn at 8x on single layer discs.
The price of a blank DVD is irrelevant* now days, you need to get good quality media, such as Verbatim and TY.
Good hardware, i would suggest the latest optiarc drives.
*unless you really need the few cents that you will be saving from low quality media.
@Chef if you pay close to 2 Eur. for a good media it is an exotic format compared to the 0.30 Eur. that you spent on a DVD-/+R discs
