Not the best of disks for important data


They have a good quality dye and are fine for everyday use in my opinion. Been using them for years.

50 discs Under £5.00 and free delivery and Datawrite i have to say this is a great deal

I normally use Datawrite Titanium £6.00 for 25 + free delivery

Datawrite is one of the best makes.

Good find freebiehunter

Just make sure your firmware is updated

I have used them for a while now and they are writing between 4x to 6x speed, fine if you have a slow writer. I've done 200 so far and no coasters yet (Pioneer 4x writer and Hitachi 8x writer). £5 is a good price with delivery. Hot.

Very good price incl delivery.
Never had a problem with Datawrite discs

Old age creeping in it's yer eyes......Thats why ye can't read em now......:thinking:
Been using these for a while with no probs.......good deal for a pack of 50....Hot for me.
#9
Soo, which are good discs to use if I still want to be able to read them in 10 years time?
#10
Used to use these all the time before I stopped using DVD media, had a few coasters every now and then, but all in all a decent set of discs (especially for the price).
#11

Taio Yuden , are considered the very best.

if u want the data to last, rec using the slowest speed possible, x1 ideally......

I agree, CMC dye is cack, yes , it will work, but they dont last, most discs on the market are total cack,

the better ones are Ritek dyes, + Panasonic brand, I only use T-Y for anything I want to last.........
#16

Pretty good deal :) used these discs in the past, they aint too bad
#21
Hot. I'm still using these from the last deal. No coasters and about 30 burns. I am backing things up on them, I don't consider these bad quality media at all.

u need to judge the quality, on the basis that the disc will be readable in a couple of years time !!

they might work now, but most discs will not be readable after a year or so, especially if recorded at high speed............

I've been using "cheap" discs since I got my first dvd writer, and haven't had any problems reading stuff I burrnt 4 or 5 years ago. All sorts of brands, just whatever is cheapest at the time I need some.
#25
You can get a £2 off voucher here but i think its on a £15 min spend (not sure)

Yeh, me too....all sorts of brand from good deals on the net to cheap disks at computer fairs. Had very few coasters too, only problems I have are when they get left on the floor and get scratched - and thats not the manufacturers fault.

- 7 times the storage capacity of CD-R
- Durable, long lasting archives
- Excellent performance
***- Storage acceleration tests guarantee safe storage for more than 30 years***
- Compatible with most leading readers and writers

Just an afterthought ! Guess they've cancelled the discount code as so many here were buying they don't need the 55p carrot to get them sold.
#28
Code didn't work for me but I've still voted hot on the standard price and free delivery.

I've used these discs for a long time and rarely have problems.
#29
Nothing wrong with these disks at all, i can still read datawrites that were written years ago, if you want data to last more than 10 years choose another format because you probably wont have a dvd drive in 10 years.
#30
hot even without code :-D bought some with paypal
#31
can anyone tell me what the Media ID is?
#32
Very good price incl delivery.
Never had a problem with Datawrite discs
Voted Hot even without the 10%
Heat added
#33
Heat added, great price - even from UKDVDR I've paid about £6 exc P&P. Nothing wrong with Datawrite, I've used them for years without problems.

Discount code just worked fine for me too :-)
#34
Hi,it isn't about ability to read a disc,its data corruption,lost data etc.That can happen within months,never mind years.You might be OK with Pron etc,you might put up with the odd skip,re-read,click or Macroblocking etc.
Your DVD writer also can have a say in quality of burn & coasters etc ie some like some media & don't like other media etc etc.
you do get what you pay for most of the time :) ,unless you can get the same thing cheaper.
But buy whatever suits your requirements,be it on cost or whatever.

Cheers BOB

ps regards TY:-

good find thanks!!! voted hot

Total Order Value £5.49
CODES DIDNT WORK :(

I used these most of the time in my Liteon DVD Recorder, till it died on me.

However, when I used them via Vista/Windows DVD Maker (on Dell pc) I had loads of error messages when reaching end of the dvd/finalisation and a few ended up in the bin. I later discovered there was a knack of recording on them with DVD Maker and it's apprently common for Windows dvd maker/vista to cause this problem on a variety of dvd brands.

Will still Vote Hot:thumbsup: and place a few orders, even if I do bin a few.

Whereas I would always recommend using the slowest speed to write any data to CD or DVD once that data is on the disc it doesnt matter what speed it was writen at as to how long it is going to last on the disc surely!
banned#39
Thats a good deal if you only need 50 at a go. If you wanted discs at a higher quantity, i would recommend Maxell discs @ an equivalent of £4.15 for 50 dvd r's, which offer better value for money
