a "slow dye" for a DVD R is more important than a slow burn
I think that a 4x certified dye is "harder under the laser" than a 16x dye
because the new 16x dyes must be manufactured to react quicker to the laser power.
So once burned at it's rated speed of 4x or even a bit slower ( 2x or 2.4x) a slow dye is "settled" fo a longer lifespan.
I also know that the nominal laser power of the laser had to be increased by at least 50% for the DL capable burners (in order to reach properly the second layer below)
Often for these burners the slower burning speeds are then missing.
Example: the Pioneer 108 cannot burn anymore at 1x.
For some new burners and MID codes the slowest possible speed seems to be even 4x.
So I wonder if the new DL burners are still capable to modulate this increased laser power in order to burn properly at low speeds (lets's say 2x or 4x in CLV mode)
or if the excessive laser power is going to "make big holes" in the dye at these slow speeds.
