    Well, this question depends on the media I burn. Verbatim single layer -- 12x, DL -- 8x, other single layer -- 4-10x (depending on the media code), other DL -- 2-4x. Plus, I use IMGBurn for all my burns, so that help greatly in the quality of the end result.

    Media is usually JVC and tossers (CMC crap media) for giveaways. All burns are 12X for +R SL because Nero CD/DVD was scoring out lower on 8X burns for this machine (than 12X). No bad burns that I haven't caused myself.

    16X for DVDs, but I just leave ImgBurn on auto, so don't really notice. My BD-25s burn from about 4X to 8X, depending on what part of the disc it's at. Haven't made a coaster in a couple of years. DL and BD is Verbatim. SL DVD is Taiyo Yuden.

    8X for by TYGO-3s. (But 3x or 4x for the 6x to 10x rated Singaporean Verb DL +Rs.) The difference (from before) is that when my PSU went up in smoke, and I had to switch to the backup computer, it has a previously unused Pioneer 111, vs. the ailing Samsung burner in the other rig that could not be trusted for burns at the higher speeds. This is working out a lot better for burns with less wait time, but still not pushing things into the range I'd consider incautious.

  11. 8x (with ImgBurn) for all single-layer DVDRs, including CMC "tossers".

    8x for SL & 2.4x for DL.

    I can wait 4-5 minutes for a SL to burn at 8x

    Like unclebud everything on Hard disks now days. Every once in a while will do a data disk but no movies.

    I don't do any video re-encoding to a lessor bps. Not for DVDs or for BRs. I will re-encode the audio but not the video.
