    verb's writs @ 8x max, but its not recommended to burn over 2.4 for info purposes....sometimes if burned @ faster speed, its harder to load movies and cut scenes.

    almost all DVD+R DL will say 2.4X on them. What you need to look at is the max speed they have. Like my Verbatim have a max speed of 6X and i burn them all at 4X and they work just fine. If the max speed was 8X then you could also use 4X burning speed.

    Now this doesn't actually mean it will burn at 4X as most burners will pick it's own good speed depending on the media used. Like when i set it to 4X it rarely has an actual burning speed that high. It will varry between 3.88X and slightly lower. IMGburn will tell you what the actual write speed is as it is going.

    Yup 4X works just fine. Things get a bit flakey at least in my experience when you burn faster than that.

    As a question a part from longer wait times obviously for your finished disk. Theres no known disadvantage of burning at below 4X is there?
