Apparently a new 18x writer's due for release next week from Sony.

Can anyone see the point as surely the difference between 16x and 18x will be about 5seconds?

Nope, I can't see the point for 18speed burners. What's 5 seconds in a man's life. tongue.gif There isn't any certified 18 speed media, so what's the use?

On my Printable Infiniti Disks I don't feel the need to run them at their maximum 16x speed and always burn at 12x. I have occasionally burnt some films at 4x just to ensure the best quality burn I can get.

If you burn DVDs faster than 8x, you could screw up video data.

8x is usually safe enough for 100% good copying. Anything above it is prone to occasional errors when burning a full DVD in that particular session, maybe one in 10 discs. I've found Ridisc to be the best for me, their extreme edition can do 16x time and time again.

ive got a 760SA. very nice drive, im only burning at 8x though, bought loads of Ritek G05 dvd-r a while back and im not going to throw them away!

ive never had any problems burning at 8x. It is awfully slow though, even more so when i can re-encode a whole movie xvid -> vob/mpeg2 faster than i can burn the same movie to a dvd

I only use pioneer A10XL x 3 for duplicating. only use 4x for video or data to make sure the best writing.

i have experience with 8x writing, the dvd data seem to be corrupted
sometimes. I've been using maxell dvd-r until now, been writing about
5000 dvd-r and still continuing

Don't matter how fast your burner is supposed to be. It all depends on what your PC has under the hood ( Bonnet). My LG burns at 18X no problem, but I got lots of horsepower under the hood ( Bonnet).
