@2seconds, personally i think, and i know mastermix does not agree :-), that unless you are burning commercial quantities ie hundreds of discs per week, as mastermix probably is, then why risk burning at faster speeds. even if they turn out ok at the time they are more likely to 'drop out' earlier than a disc burnt at 4x. a friend of mine who has about 9 yamaha burners and who burns up to 1,000 discs a week will not burn CD+G any faster than 4x and ALL the discs i've got from him in the past are still going strong even up to 5 years later. while discs got from other sources are starting to drop out 6 months down the line. but it's your decision, mastermix would not give you a bum steer we just have different views on this issue

plextor or yamaha is the only way to go in my opinion they don't make bad burners and getting a faster one probably means more bells and whistles, rather than a drop in burn quality or write errors. i think the only further advice i would give is to get a SCSI (usually a little more expensive but not always) rather than an IDE. that was the advice i got.

With a Plextor you will be limited to 12x if you want a SCSI Plextor. If you are burning nothing but CD+G you can't do better than the 12x SCSI Plextor. But the 12x Plextor plus a SCSI card will cost more than the new 40x IDE Plextor, which will be better for just about anything else. The new 40x Plextor is too new to be supported by CDRWIN yet but will burn data at up to 40x (average of about 30x), audio at 24x, and burn CD-RWs at 12x. It does include other quality improvements over earlier Plextor burners, including the ability to adjust the laser strength, and PCBs found only on the $10,000 Professional Plextors used to master PS2 CDs.
