Fast Drives, Slow Media

Every month or so one company tops another for fastest Burner. Now the 24X models are out. I just brought a 16x Plextor. Now I see 16X CD-Rs discs everywhere but has anyone seen 10X CD-RW discs? I haven't seen anythign faster than 4X for CD-RW discs. Any recommendations?

  1. I myself haven't seen them in any retail stores in my area, but yes, they're available - I think I remember people saying they were available in their areas and also on the web. Sorry, I can't give you a pointer.

  8. www.pricewwatch.com has the 10X CD-RW's. Do a search for Media cd-rw #pack 10X. Replace the # sign with a number,10,20,25,50,100,200. For 100 10X CD-RW the price is expensive $85 + shipping. I recomend buying CDR's
