I plan on buying either some Taiyo Yuden Prenium 8x or 16x single layer discs to be used for off site storage. Probably I won't read very often. But it is the only backup, so I want them to be good.
I have a Mac G5 burner capable of 16x burning of DVD's. But most of the info I have been able to read says to burn +R discs at a maximum of 8x for good results.
The 16x ones cost alittle more, but I would sure like the increased speed as I have quite a few to do.
What is your experence with 16x discs?
Thank you for any advice.
I burn my photos on 8x speed (but dvd is 16x) and i dont have any bad dvds after 2years (so far).
Other stuff i burn on 16 and didnt have a problem as well, but i dont check them often.
