The state of the buffer?

Hi, I have an Aopen 3248 burner with 8MB buffer. I noticed most of the new burners from 40x and up are supporting 2mb buffers. Are the buffer capacities a thing of the past or do you feel it is better to have an 8MB buffer verse the 2mb?

If you are relying on the buffer to complete a burn at 40x, you will be disappointed. Consider how long 8MB will last at that speed. the drive needs this buffer in order for buffer-underrun protection to function, but that is all it is needed for. Setting a good-sized read-buffer in your software will have far more impact.

Thanks, i figured that after checking some software utilites out. Thanks.
