I can burn them @6x. Only burnt about 7 so far but they seem happy at this speed.

Great, just have to dump my firmware and then upgrade to burn faster, quality okay?

Yep just install Herries’ 1.07 beta7 firmware and you’ll be able to burn those discs at 6X.
Most people have reported pretty good results burning these at 6X, but be warned that PRINCO discs can vary in quality greatly and are considered to be crap discs by many people…
(Although, the 4X type are much MUCH better than the 1X PRINCOs)
