    There seems to be a wide range of opinion on this and we kind of send mixed signals between individual advise and the FAQ's.

    It's very difficult to vote at this poll.

    Burning speed depend from the combination of burner/firmware/media.

    With my benq1640 usually I burn @12x (both 16x certified media and 8x certified media) with very good results. But I use only high quality media. With not so good quality media I burn @ certified speed of the media. Right now I have 8x and 16x certified media, so I burn @ 8x and 12x (benq drives have a bad firmware issue in 16x burnings not solved until now).

    With my liteon 1693 (that too bad don't allow me overspeed) usually I burn @12x my 16x certified media and @ their certified speed all other media.

    Yes, I know, and this should demonstrate that the golden burning rules should be updated

    I wouldn't say that, just that benq's use a cheat to qualify.
    Below are 2 scans showing that LG's burn better than benq's.
    and faster.


    btw I surfed while the burns were going on, but only 2 newsgroups/forums

    the 16x burns show major issues close to the outer edge when true 16
    writting speed is reached

    third scan added to show what happens when lower burn speed to 8x
