At last!

Whats the difference in specification between this and say… 4X?

Are you serious with this question? The answer is half the the burning time compared to 4x

Media is expected from yamaha?!?! That can’t be right.

Not really. 8x recording starts at 4x, then goes to 6x and only later goes to 8x, e.g. on the NEC 3500 and assuming a full 4.3GB, burn starts at 4x, then only around 20% of disk burn it moves to 6x and at around 55% it goes to 8x, until the end of the disk.

My LG starts at 6x switching to 8x at 512MB of written data… :d
