Does anyone have an expererience with these discs in particular?
On the thread with the £16.99 for 100 offer there seems to be some doubt concerning the authenticity and the quality of those discs.

It would good to hear from anyone who has used these before. There are no customer reviews at svp.co.uk.

Thanks.

I got a dodgy batch of Taiyo's from SVP a few months ago. It was their cheaper versions.

Don't think these will be the same.

I had some faulty read/write errors, chucked 1/4 of 100 away

You threw away one quarter??!! That's a massive proportion.
Are you absolutely certain that it was these same discs? Did you get them from svp??

Also what software and hardware do you use? It sounds like something is wrong with your burning procedure with that many coasters.

Even with the highest quality disks, sometimes you get a bad batch. Let SVP know and they will exchange or refund.

These disks and those on the other thread will be standard grade Taiyo Yuden (i.e. not up to the excellent quality of TY disks in the past). However, they will burn at an acceptable quality and, because of the dye, should not degrade over time like many competing disks. I have some TY DVD-R printables and the Datawrite TY non-printables on order and will run some quality checks through them when they arrive. Check out the SVP customer comments to get an impression of the likely quality - in general, the TY 8x disks are higher quality than their 16x (TY only moved over to selling non Grade A disks when they launched 16x). With modified firmware, most DVD writers will write the TY 8x disks at 16x and so if quality is important to you - go for the TY 8x.

How can you say that without having used them yourself?? That is pure conjecture. It is much more useful to hear from some who has actually used these discs in particular.

There aren't any comments yet. They appear to be a new line.

Gulity as charged. However, I did say that I had some on order and would post the results. I also am not making the comment completely without evidence. The forums at CDfreaks are proof positive that TY now produce different qualities of disk differentiated by price. These are particularly cheap for TY and so it is highly unlikely that they are TY's premium product. If I'm wrong I will be a very happy man and post the information for others.

There are no comments for the printables but there are plenty of comments on the other TY Datawrite page and I did say that I was looking at both.

Disks just arrived. They are genuine TY for anyone that had any doubts. The batch code for the 8x Datawrites is GG000245 and they come in an original TY cakebox. The batch code for the 16x DVD-R printables is GH000149 and they have been repackaged into standard cakeboxes. There are no visible defects or bonding issues. I will burn some test disks tonight and report back on the burning quality.

I have tested 3 of each type of disc. Both types are very good but fall just short of being excellent. I burnt the same video file using CloneDVD2 at maximum speed settings using an NEC 7170A writer with 1.02 firmware. The quality of the discs was then tested using a Liteon LH-18A1P writer and Nero CD-DVD Speed version 4.7.0.0 set at 8x speed.

The Datawrite 8x DVD-R discs retuned an overall Nero quality score of between 90 and 93 with the maximum PI Failures being 4 and the average around 0.15. There was a substantial increase in PI Errors from the 2.3Gb mark onwards but without a corresponding increase in Failures PI Errors averaged around 20.

The 16x DVD-R Printables returned an overall Nero quality score of between 90 and 93 with the maximum PI Failures being 4 and the average around 0.5. The PI Error rate was fairly consistent across the disc and averaged around 12.

An overall score above 90 is very good with 95 being considered excellent. The average number of PI Failures for the 16x discs is higher than you would expect from TY Grade A discs but still better than most competing brands. The Datawrite 8x discs provide fewer PI Failures but the number and pattern of PI Errors is beyond what you would expect for TY Grade A discs. In overall quality terms, there isn't much to choose between the 2 discs and both should provide excellent compatibility and longevity.

As a comparison, I burnt the same file onto a TY Grade A 16x Printable and tested it. I obtained an overall quality score of 95. Maximum PI failure was 2 and average .01. PI errors were an average of 3.

In short, these are TY standard (not Grade A) discs. They are very good and will provide better quality than most competing discs. At the price, there are no cheaper printable discs from SVP that I could guarantee would better the quality of these discs. At £4.99 for 25, the Verbatim 16x non-printable using TY dye would provide better quality.

I've tried to burn 3 discs in my NEC 3510 burner and they all fail before they even start. Will be sending them back:x

Before doing that - try upgrading your firmware at the following site:

http://www.micheldeboer.nl/firmware/index.html

I think your 3510 is effectively a 3500 with faster DL speeds. However, it is a very old drive and predates TY 16x DVD-R media. Hence, unless you are using a modern firmware, the drive won't know how to burn this media. This would explain your inability to burn the media.

Thanks mate

I e-mailed svp and they asked me to check my firmware(It is actually a 3500)

I updated the fimware with the latest one last night and it burnt the discs fine (except for a little blip in the memory buffer)

Think I'll replace my dvd player drive with a new writer (prob the 18X Sony one that was posted on here a week or so ago). Should'nt have any problems then.

Thanks Lowtrawler. That's an informative and useful review especially for novices like myself. I have added to your reputation.:thumbsup:

In the end I went with these discs. http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=164. I chose based on the SVP customer reviews and a bit of online research I did.

The 3500 is still considered to be one of the best writers ever made and even today gives higher quality burns than most of the modern writers. Unless the firmware update does not allow you to burn on the media you want, I would suggest you keep the 3500 until it dies. The Sony GW170 and NEC 7170 are both the same drive and will shave a few seconds off your burn times. Both can regularly be found for under £20 before delivery (try Scan computers and look out for todays specials - they tend to feature once a week).
