I paid £7.99 for 50 discs a little while ago so thought i'd get some more and was annoyed that the price had gone up but thought hey..still better than anywhere else i've seen...then i spotted that you actually get 80 discs!!! Its a brilliant deal in my opinion!

As I said, i've used Maxell discs before and they work brilliantly..i've had problems with others makes but never had a problem with any of their discs!

They do DVD-R as well for the same quantity and price - although i must admit, i have no idea what the difference is between the two types!!!

Plus 5% discount code if you havent used it already! Oh yeah and 4% Quidco!!!!!

Good quality discs, find the minus type have better compatability, ordered some with my £2 off code from previous posts, a better deal until midnight tonight if you need a few discs is to order from "bigpockets" which I have just done as follows:
5 x 50 x8 speed ritek discs @ 5.29 each
1 x 50 x16 speed ritek disks @ 5.39
Free delivery over £30 code "MAYDAY"
Total cost £31.84 delivered for 300 ritek disks.

SVP are doing 99p deliverey off a £30 or more order as well.

Hope this might help someone.

Because DVDR media should be 8p or less if you can be bothered to still use it - people with sense use memory sticks/card for media now.


And what does VHS have to do with anything?

I think a lot of people who buy 80 dvd-rs have another use in mind than data storage... :whistling:

pros and cons of +R and -R ?

pros and cons of +R and -R ?


DVD-R was the original format. It was DVD dash R in much the same way that CD-R is CD dash R.

5 years later a new standard appeared which was supposed to be better in compression and speed. Because they labelled it DVD+R to indicate superiority, the previous format got labelled as minus.

However, so many DVD players use DVD-R that either they are DVD-R or DVD-R and DVD+R.

By default, most people would burn on DVD-R to ensure that all DVD players will be compatible.

Hope that helps! :)

Sorry i didn't realise it was a post about CDR media!!!! could have sworn it was about DVD media, oh well, so just to let everyone know on here who still uses DVD and CD media storage apparently if you've got any sense you'll start using memory sticks and memory cards. - :whistling:

oh and i guess VHS has the same to do as CDR!!!

But the majority of decent burners can now do Bitsetting on +R media which means they are pretty much as compatible a -R media as it fools the players into thinking they are DVD-ROM discs instead of a DVD+R discs.
Also +R media has a few technical advantages over -R, but that said so long as you get the best of either media (Tayo Yunden, Verbs ..etc ..etc) then the difference between the two is pretty insignificant tbh.

I need someone to do me a big favour.

Has anyone got these Maxell DVD+R discs? If yes, please can you find out the Media ID of the discs?

If you don't know how to do that, this is how you do it:
1. Download http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/
2. Open program. Look at the Unique Disc Identifier. Post here please.

This website tells you whether they are good or bad quality based on the Disc ID

MANY thanks in advance. I need to know if these are good quality discs before I purchase them.

they also have the the 100 pack for £12.99
http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5319092/Maxell-DVD+R-16x-100-Discs-Carry-Pack/Product.html
works out a little more per disc but then the weight for postage should be taken into consideration...

i know the maxell ones are ok, used datawrite before (not a whole bunch) they seem to be ok

i buy my lightscribe ones from there, they are spot on.


i dont see much can go wrong to be honest with you, a disc is only a disc at the end of the day!
