I konow you have talked about it a thousand of times... and I know too there is not a general rule, but reading the pages of this forum I have not find the answer yet.
So I do apologize for this question, maybe silly, but not for me
Reading the forum it seems to be that slow speeds are not reccomended and I came to the end that 16x might be the perfect solution: it is a good compromise ... not too slow (old rule for old drivers and medias), not too fast to guarantee a good compatibility! So I made some test by using the T.Y. I had at home and yes, 16x was the right solution.
Today I bought 100 new T.Y. (the same ones I usually buy) and after several test I saw that 2x is (AGAIN) the best speed, like it used to be:
(Media: T.Y./Drive: Plextor Premium II)
Total C1: 1966
Total C1: 5519
What has been changed? Something in the chemical composition of the new T.Y.?
Is 2x still a good ?
I guess I need a clarification, please! :o
