[QUOTE=cd pirate;2170772]Chef, you could have spent an extra 15 seconds saying what speed is optimal, but I guess you wouldn’t have 24,000 posts if you did.
4x is most likely the sweet spot. I find that it is with my writers. Btw many of Verbatims DVD+DL media say 2.4x but they are safe to write much faster, that’s why you are allowed to burn faster.
I would personally stick with 4x for best quality (6x as a maximum). 2.4x is bad as it is too slow to use in a really new writer like the Pioneer 116 (can produce lower quality).[/QUOTE]
Well, you know, i dislike redundancy. means repeating stuff…
Anyway, the “optimal speed” depends mostly on the used burner, with the 116 here I’d choose 6x, or even 4x.
