    Does anyone have an opinion? I usually always burn my DVD's at 4x anyways, so speed rating doesn't really matter to me. I am going for pure burn quality not burn speed, so is there a difference between the 16x and the 8x Verbatim DVD+R's? Does one seem to burn more consistantly better than the other or does it matter?

    I am looking to buy some Inkjet printable Verbatim DVD+R's and was just wanting to know if there is a difference in quality between the two before I buy them.

    I use the 16x because they are always on sale. I don't see any difference in quality.

    Depending on your burner,you may have to up the burn speed to 8x for MCC-004 media. Verbatim 16x media was designed to be burned faster. Don't go below 4x or you may get loads of crc errors like I did.

    8x for me on the MCC-004. The +8x are MCC-003 and are very good,but getting harder to find. Both are top notch stuff.
