This is a great forum and I learned so much from it. Anyway, I just got my 3500 and flashed with TDK firmware 2c8. It worked so far so good. I am quite pleased with it.
I have a question though. In general, is it the slower the dvd (dvd-/+r) burn, the better the quality of the dvd? Let’s say I have some 4x fuji TYG01 dvd which can be burned at 8x. If I burn one at 2x and another one at 8x, is the quality of the 2x one going to be better than 8x one? By quality I mean results from kprobe and nero dvdspeed. Is there any consensus? Unfortunately, I don’t have a Liteon drive to test it so that I can’t share the results with the peers. I think it would be good to ask here. I am interested in this because I always prefer quality (life and integrity of the data on the dvd) than speed.
