Cause I have no coasters writing 4x to Ritek G04’s, and by Kprobe results look better than my DRU-500A’s. I could care less about whether it writes at 4x or 8x, just as long as it writes. To me, complaining that 8x burns have more errors than 4x burns is like complaining that my car isn’t as safe at 150mph as it is at 75mph.
I’ve been reading these DRU-700A threads under the assumption that the people here can’t get them to write any readable discs of any brand at any speed. Is the firmware issue a problem with 8x burning or with every type of burn speed/media combination?
