Do standalone DVD players like high speed?

I have a Philips DVP3055 Combo DVD/video.

Will I see quality loss if I write my DVD’s @ higher speed (8x or 16X) ?
Am I better of writing them at a lower speed or doesn’t that matter anymore ?


The data is stored digitally, so no quality loss.
Write your media at its rated speed. (Exception: 16x media can be good at 12x or even 8x, but 8x media should be burned at 8x, 4x media at 4x…)
Many modern DVD burners do not burn well at low speeds!
