Well I'd say I've done 1000-2000 on my TDK 8x VeloCD. Had thought of upgrading but the difference in doing a cd in 9 minutes and 4-6 isn't worth paying for. I'll probably keep it until it dies out completely which may be soon, have been having problems but I'm not sure if its software or hardware.

Wow; some high numbers.
Sounds promising.

I think I'm only approaching 300 - 400 (could be more, I haven't kept close track); then again I've only had my burner since last September.

Ive done about 400 on me 6x write Ricoh. Not had too many problems with that, so i decided to go for another Ricoh 12x- i hope thats just as reliable =]

My old HP 7200i, which is a rebadged Philips 3600, did 500 burns before it started to make coasters. It still works as a reader, but who wants a 6X reader today?
I would probably help to clean the lens, but I bought a Liteon 12X instead!
