    1. Might be...
    2. ...if you wanted to burn higher speed discs.
    3. Yes, especially the official manufacturer's updates.
    4. You might even find they burn at a higher speed.

    Do you have a particular firmware in mind?

    Pioneer DVR-109 would be an excellent choice for 16x burning. SVP Communications are doing internal ones for £39.99 or external for £49.98. Cracking drives at a cracking price :smashin:
