Back when I used flac, I used the strongest mode of flake (because it was stronger than the original).

It depends of the computer I use.
With a quad core, I don't mind the additional time to compress at the 8 level.
While with a dual core, I prefer to use the 5 level.

Is there any senseful reason to use anything else than 8 nowadays when it comes to libFlac?

3-4x longer encoding time for 0,5% saved disk space, maybe?

With a powerful machine, the additional encoding time is not a big matter i.e it's still enough fast.
Unless you have too much stuff to encode.

Well, using level 8 during ripping isn't a problem as ripping is way slower then FLAC transcoding. But, I don't think it's... ecological to transcode hundreds of FLAC albums. biggrin.gif
