Burn music cds faster than 8X? Good deals on burners?

I did a search and found a thread from December that advised going no faster than 8X when burning music cds. Have things changed since then?

I ask because I have an 8X burner and noticed the 24X burners at the store. Best Buy had a TDK 24X burner for $100 after rebate (although I think it ends today).

If the faster speed works, I think the upgrade would be worth it in time saved. So what are the good deals on burners at this time?

TIA!

I've had no problem burning music up to 16x (the fastest I have) and playing it, even in the car.

Never have a problem playing a CD burned @ 24x. Beside, nowaday CD players' laser are able to read CD-R much better than before.
