don't know where from but I have in mind that DVD media are best burned at their maximal rated speed, i. e. 4x media at 4, 8x media at 8, 16x media at 16. Is this fiction or reality? If true, do I loose quality when burning with lower speeds?
Background of my question is that I'm going to replace my notebook combi drive by a DVD DL burner. AFAIK, there is no 16x slim burner actually available. On the other hand, the 8x media are being replaced by 16x right now. So I'd to burn 16x media with 8x burners (LiteOn SOSW-833SX, NEC ND-6750). Or should I wait for 16x slim burners to come in near future?
Thanks for any advice.
