Default Burning DVD at 1x?

I usually like to burn my DVDs at the lowest possible speed to make sure the data is accurate. The max that my burner supports is 4x and i used to use roxio, and 4x was the only speed that it would allow me to burn at. Then i switched over to DiscJuggler and it let me select 2.4x or 4x. Ive made the transition to ImgBurn. Now i can select any write speed down to 1x. I've done one DVD at 1x and it verified ok (i didn't actually test the data). I notice that ImgBurn says that the supported write speeds for my media (CompUSA 4x DVD+R) are 4x and 2.4x.

Should I still burn at 1x even though it isnt really supported? Ive also read that burning at very low speeds is not good for single layer media.

Slower is always more accurate, but alot of the time they would still work equaly the same. What kind of dvd are you trying to burn? Movie,Game or just plain Data?
