 +==== Market Availability ====
 +
 +My Blu-ray / DVD drive is old (from 2009), and it's an 4x BD-ROM, and 8x DVD-ROM.
 +
 +The majority of optical drives on the market now (March 2018) are 12x BD-ROM, and 18x DVD-ROM.
 +
 +To be safe, in my code, I set the default max speed at my drives, and allow users to override the drive speed manually to maximize the read speed **per second**.
