I am finally gonna buy my first DVD-writer. Does the 716A work completely like it should (is it a safe buy) or does it still have bugs and is it better to get the 712A which hopefully doesn’t have any bugs (which firmware should I get). Which bugs do the 716/712 still have?
Also, isn’t it so that writing at 16x speed isn’t recommended for backing up important data. I believe I read that in an article once. What about that?
Also, aren’t most DVD media only 8x, so why risk 16x. Sorry for the newbie question, but can you choose the burning speed so it only burns at the recommended speed of the media?!
It’s just that I read so many different opinions that I don’t know what to believe and the 716 is still a rather new drive so maybe it still have some bugs that need to be worked out? Anybody can please clarify all this cause I am confused! Thanks very much!
