Should I upgrade my 8X burner or wait?

Postby aristottle on Thu Feb 24, 2005 8:36 pm

I have a nutech DDW-082 Dual format burner. With no complaints.

Should I jump on the dual layer band wagon and buy a new burner now or wait till the media comes down in price and the DL burning speeds increase in third generation burners?

What do you guys think?

Same situation

I've got a nu-tech 082 (Orginally an 81) and I'm in the same situation as you. I think I am going to hold off on upgrading till DL media comes way down in price. There isn't much of a time difference between 8x and 16x burning currently.

That is the way I am leaning.....I wish I could get more 4x media to burn at 8X though...I am using b377 firmware...what are you using?

I'm constantly tempted to upgrade my 8x burner, but then I see quality scans posted for the variety of 16x burners and I say to myself "my drive is as good, or even better............." and sooo many of them have firmware problems or QC problems. There would have to be a real leap somewhere, like when DL burners came out.
