Would a x4 player provide inferior playback compared to a x8? What would be the benefit of a x8 player?

The faster drive will be able to copy data files off the disc more quickly, assuming you ever use it for that purpose. leon2006 a b G Storage May 25, 2010 12:21:04 PM It should not matter for normal use or movie playing. I have a BD burner so the speed is important. It saves time. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
