I noticed in the reviews of 6x and 4x writers that (BD-R) media written at 6x seemed to be written hardly any faster than media written at 4x, across different writers. Recording times always seemed to be about 21 to 22 mins. For example:
[li]LG GGW-H20L: Verbatim media were written at 6x in 21m:45s
[/li][li]LG GBW-H20L: Verbatim media were written at 6x in 21m:24s
[/li][li]LG GBW-H20L: Panasonic media were written at 4x in 22m:30s
[/li][li]Sony BWU-200S: Verbatim media were written at 4x in 22m:56s
Does this reflect actual use and the experience of people here? Is 6x really not faster than 4x at all? A difference of one minute does not really feel “faster” if the whole session takes over 20 mins… How about 8x, is that going to offer any actual recording time improvements? Oh, and: If I am correct, why is 6x not that much faster than 4x?
