In fact, USB 2.0 probably can’t handle 18x DVD writers at full speed, and 20x DVD writers are starting to make it to market.
None of my 18/20x drives have been able to burn at much faster than 16x with any of my PCs over a USB connection, and 16x is not always guaranteed.
It's possible that some combinations of 18/20x drive with the right enclosure and the right USB controller can achieve 18x/20x burning speed, but in general I would agree with his comment.
