FS Benq 4x dvdr vesus BB 8x dvdr

hi,

need some help deciding which to buy. I am considering buying a dvd burner and some dvdr disc. I've never had a dvd burner before so don't really know what the 4x and 8x difference is. Can somebody tell me how much time you actually need to burn a full dvd 4.7gb at 4x vesus 8x? Thanks. Much Appreciated..

Hi Tree,
Even if you have a 4x burner, go for the BB 8x DVD+R as they are of much higher quality (Ricoh or TY). 4x takes 15 min approx to burn and 8x takes 9 min approx. to burn depending on your burner.

Cheers

if ur goin for the dvd+r then i agree, go for the BB sale.

but if u want dvd-r, then id say go for the FS sale for the BenQ. i say this because the dvd-r are either TY or Prodisc...and id rather know for sure im getting a sony media code in the benQ then gamble in getting a TY or Prodisc

just my thots
