    Retail ones come with black and silver changeable bezels too, at least my 18x did. Bulk lists it's color and has no extra bezels.

    I know right caboose. I wonder why its taking them so long with DVDs to get a high burn rate like for CDs.

    Im almost scared to wonder how much time itll take for Blu ray to make it to the x speeds that DVD is at right now.

    Furthermore when are the DVD manufacturers going to produce DVDs tha we can actually use beyond 16x? because thats all I still see around nowadays.

    "users can write at 22x speeds on 16x media"

    Media speed apparently doesn't matter on this drive.

    The X multiplier is different for CDs and DVDs. DVDs are way faster than CDs in MB/sec.
    1x BD = 3.4x DVD = 30x CD

    Here's a thread explaining it.
    effmaster says thanks.

    :shadedshu If all you can manage to do is burn coasters, then either your PC is most likely highly unstable and has corrupted files scattered everywhere or your CD/DVD burner is kaput and needs replacement.

    Just like with Blu ray and HD DVD having a higher bandwidth than DVD just a slower burn rate i.e. 2x
