maybe with 8x media coming out, we will see if better media will help some of the drives struggling with crappy media :slight_smile:

Well the 4x TDKs can already be written in 8x with my sexy plexy. :slight_smile:

yikes, I pay $1.68 for a 4x disc. I’ll take the option to buy 2.4x more discs than I will to burn in

Strange my Verbatim DatalifePlus x4 DVD+R medias burned just fine at x8 on my Plextor PX-708A, so may be it’s just a name change ?
