admittedly, maybe rubbish is a bit harsh
but prove to me that burning on a good media that is capable of burning at that speed on a computer with enough resources needs to be burnt at a slower speed?
take a look at this thread HERE and you will see poor example burns even at 1X
I've just ran DVDSpeed and look at my pic here of a full to the brim 4489MB (4.3837Gb) DVD burnt using NERO(another so called no go area) at 4X using the 105 and unbranded ritek G04 (dark dye) and that's what it's like for every burn and I got the same results when I had a 104 using Ritek G03

I make sure my DVD is spotless also by cleaning it before burning cos even a piece of dust can affect the burn and most DVD blanks wil have at least one speck of dust on them even when they are sealed and some have even more. You will also be surprised how some people don't realise this and manhandle the blanks creating even more possibilities of contaminating the blank cos DVD's are much more sensitive to dust etc than CD-R's during burning
if you look closely enough in the light after you have burnt you can see the bits where it does not burn due to contamination on the DVD surface that was there during the burn and this I learnt in the beginning and now my DVD's are perfect when the come out cos they are spotless when I put them in
the other thing that can affect burning at high speed is the system resources. If when burning a strain is put on the system resources this may also have an effect on the burn as data may not be transferred efficiently even if there is a buffer
so I'll let you prove to me that burning at slower speeds is better rather than me rubbishing that theory. Also the theory for saving space at the outer edge of the disc for some people is again probably again a combination of system resources and poor media
maybe now you will see my reasons why I was a bit strong in saying the theory was rubbish
is that not fair then

maybe I shudda wrote "burning at a low speed will be a safer way for people with poorer quality media and lower system resources to use to ensure a high quality burn"
