    This is crazy.

    I am reliving the days back when 2x CD burners could be had for less than $400 and I was super happy back then.

    Yesterday I snagged the Pioneer Dual 8x burner. Have chugged out some data DVD's of random video's, mp3's patches and the sort just to try it out. The mind bogggles that a laser is throwing a couple megabytes per SECOND at the disc. Literally melting parts of the disc at such speeds, and being able to incorporate error correction and all that extra stuff. I chugged out a nearly full DVD-R disc in about 15 minutes. That is a hell of a lot of data. Sorry to rave on and on, but it is new hardware for me and I haven't been this giddy with new hardware in quite some time!

    were you only burning at 4x? before my 4x sony drive died a slow death, i burned at 4x and took 15 minutes. if you have any favorite bands, and a high speed connection, you should check out sharing the groove, they have a dvd dection, and you can download dvds of bands that permit taping of their shows. combined with the dvd artwork that people make, you can have some pretty sweet looking dvds for the price of a disc (and a lot of download time). enjoy

    Yea I am sure he was buring at 4x. 4x dvd (r's) take about 15 min to fill up.

    8X dvd-r's are around, but pretty costly still

    At the moment, IIRC, only DVD+Rs are up to 8x, while DVD-Rs are at 4x.

    Patrick, the new Pioneer 8x8 as it is called does 8x DVD+/-R and 4x +/-RW.

    Right now, I have no 8x media, nor see any for sale around Oklahoma City. But that shall eventually change.

    I wonder when the DVD-R 8x media will show up because of the DVD Forum's thumbs up for DVD-R 8X. It's tough to find 8X media for DVD+R as it is (at a good price).

    Travis would surely blow his wad if he ever got a hold of a dual-layer DVD burner...or even better, Blu-Ray or HDDVD. [​IMG]
