New Dvd Burner or not?

I am thinking of purchasing a new dvd burner…as of now I have the 401s still at 401s…I would upgrade it to 811s but i can’t seem to find exact directions on this. however…I would like a burner that would be able to burn to cheaper media like the platinum disks. I 'm not sure if my current burner would do it even at 811s

any suggestions? thanks

Most people would advise NOT using cheap(er) disks as not only are you likely to have general burning problems but that the life of the burned media is questionable. Decent media (certainly 4x & 8x) is not really not that expensive now. I paid £6(9euro,$12) for 25 Ritek G05’s which are decent quality.
