dvd-rw question

by Wesley51 / January 21, 2006 7:42 AM PST

I just purhased my first dvd recorder to replace my vcr.It's a Panasonic dmr-es20.My question is about the write speeds on the different dvd-rw's I've seen.According to the manual it will write in 2X and 4X.Will one do any better than the other,or does disk speed matter on these units?-Thanks.

I thought I might need to clarify exactly what I'm asking.My question is in relation to which dvd-rw disk should be used with my unit.What difference in performance will it make if I use a dvd-rw 2X disk versus a dvd-rw 4X.-thanks

If you use a 4x disk then the show will tape faster so you can watch it sooner...
