As long as you're using good media (Ritek, I still don't understand why people use other media), then burning at their rated speed will result in perfect burns. A Rtiek burnt at 4x will probably have better read rates than any generic, even if burnt at 1x. If you are using crappy media, you may want to burn at a low speed. If you're using something quality, burn at their rated speed.

I agree. I've been using Ritek DVD-R with a Lite-On 811S and I've never had to burn at a slower speed. Slower speeds are a safe bet, but I wouldn't worry about it unless you encounter problems or are using cheap media. There's no real reason to use cheap media though. Any savings in cost will be negated by burning problems.

I've always burnt at maximum speed (2x or 4x depending on the DVD-r) and have yet to have problems (knock on wood).

Once I found media that worked well, I burn at the maximum speed. That's with Ritek or TDKs on a Thomson.

As people have mentioned in here, quite alot of it is dependant on your media. I believe that most of the problems people reported with burning at higher speeds can be attributed to cheap quality media. I personally won't trust anything but a Ritek or Taiyo Yuden dye anymore. I have burned at 4x on Ritek/Ridata for PS2, XBOX and DVD Movie backups and never had a problem. It is true that 1x is the most reliable overall but they way I see it why bother having a 4x drive or 4x media if you are just gonna burn at 1x.

I've burned all of my Riteks at 4X, and I seldom have a problem.

I use the Ritek G04's and have burnt them at both 2x and 4x. Every disc has worked flawlessly in my Thomson drive, so I'll stick with burning at 4x. It's quicker tongue.gif

I have a stock samsung, and I burn G04's and Memorex 4x DVD-R @ 8x in under 9 minutes. No problems here

You need hacked firmware tho, for the pioneer DVR-107

If my current burner were to die in the near future that would be the drive I would go for. wink.gif

These Ritek G04 DVD-R discs sound promising, I'd like to know if anybody has had any success getting them to read in the new 6035 Phillips drives?

I currently use white top Princo 4x DVD-R's (I know everybody hates Princos) but they are amazingly good....every drive reads them perfectly except maybe 1-2 out of every 10 6035 Phillips drives. (I see a LOT of Xbox drives).

So, if the 6035 drives read the Riteks, I'll swap immediately smile.gif
