    Mines just arived, will slap it in later. Been having probs with my 712A sometimes not reading disks and buffer probs, couldn't be bothered sending it back so opted for the latest new one.

    Hopefully this will fix my probs.

    Sometime last year I read an article that Panasonic claimed that 16x would be the max speed, any faster & media might break apart :eek: I guess then there's been a breakthrough, or does that mean 18x blanks will be some expensive/quality media :confused:
