    What is the best speed to burn 16x Media on??? I currently am burning it on 6x but was wondering if I would still get top notch results at a higher speed!|!!|

    If you bought them Sony's try 16x. Thats all I burn at anymore. I tried every speed setting, even 18X on my Liteon. Ive noticed no difference in scans from 4x-16x. Give it a try.

    Depends on:
    Your burner/media quality/and stand alone player/s.

    Usually the stand alone players will tell you how fast to burn,or you'll get a bad playback-Pixellation,freezing,skipping,jumping.

    Good quality burner,high quality 16x media- 8x and 12x should be no problem.Watch out for slow burning with quality verbatim 16x media.Those were designed to be burned faster.

    Good quality burner,low quality 16x media- 4x

    I keep it at 8x with verbatim,ty,maxell hitachi.
    4x with sony,ritek,ricohs

    By all means then try one at 16x. At first I was using my NEC to burn, but have since have gone to the LiteOn LH-18A1P. As said earlier I have yet to get a bad burn at 16x. Of coarse I agree with saugmon in that you should let your stand alone player dictate what is acceptible. Im just stating my own experiences and if there were any problems im sure I would see it since im using DVD Rebuilder and upconverting to 1080 on my plasma. Good luck in whatever you choose.
