Sounds cheap to me. I’m thinking of getting a burner for my new desktop which is partly assembled. Is this a good price?
#2
If their quality is the same as their CD's and DVD's then i'd steer clear.

A lot of "coasters" in every pack

Thanks ordered.

I hope not, I just bought the LG blu ray writer from Amazon (posted here yesterday) and really dont want to feel like i'm back in 1998 when I bought my first cd writer with my student grant money

I've only bought Maxell when they're BOGOF but even then i'm beginning to think they're not worth the hassle.

The only discs i've never had issues with are Sony and Verbatim

I been using Sumvision BDR discs made by Riteck and haven't had a single coaster, tempted by these I got some Aone discs last week from 7dayshop for same price as these

I found BD-R very good and bloody quick at burning @ 4x they appear to be coated and I can burn 23gb quicker than a 8gb dual layer and far more reliable so far

Oh and imgburn is great copier for blue-ray and its free

I'd say you've been lucky with your Sony's then. With DVDs I stick to Verbatim since only the Sony's from Japan or Taiwan are meant to be good and Sony make / brand others. A good guide is http://www.digitalfaq.com/reviews/dvd-media.htm

@shrek BTW, just because you don't get any coasters doesn't necessarily mean the media is okay even if it verifies. Archival life is hard to judge but there are programs which can get the read the CRC data and give you an estimate of the chances of being able to read the disc a few months / years down the line.

I remember someone making their Acer restore disc with these Adata DL DVDs and of course when they needed them, they were no longer readable. Irony was, two single-layer Verbs would have been cheaper...

With all that, the deal's still hot but with caveats.

Havent had any problems I verify and then checked on pc bad blue-ray player

Only time will tell if any crc errors occur, Ritek media is usually pretty good not sure what dye these are
#10
These discs are Ritek dye, I've used about 50 so far without issues. Movies play from start to finish with no glitching on my PS3

I've used several of these, and they're very 'hit and miss'. The Traxdata one's are very reliable for the price. Also, always best to burn at slower speeds, get a much better burn that way.

Price is very good though, reflects on the quality though if you think about it!

I don't a Blu ray writer either but have used over 700 Maxell dvds with only about 20 coasters and most of those have been my fault. A friend of mine writes out a lot of Blu Rays disks a week and he tends to buy the cheaper brands and he hasn't had many failures. The main thing you need to do is make sure the writers firmware is kept upto date.

Bought loads of Maxell kit, from Tapes to MDs, CD-R and DVD-R. Can honestly say the only "coasters" I've had have been due to my own fault rather than the disc. Mind you, I refuse to burn DVD-R above 4x... oO

no stock and 4-5 days before despatch thats pathetic, advertising stuff they dont have yet again.

Fine if you've got old stock / media / or a DVD writer that is older / or a one that lists 4x as a viable write speed on modern media. Co's setting 4x on a disc that only supports 8x will still burn at 8x (if Nero tells you 4x ignore it )

Slowest speed is not always the best option*, especially if the slower/slowest speed relies on a generic write strategy / by all means stick to the slowest speed the writer has set in its firmware aka the(write strategy) (media rated for 8x eg a DL+ does not always like to be burned @2.4x 4x etc) and can fail in certain drive/media combos.. Choosing 8x its rated speed where the drive has a write strategy in its firmware to make a better job of it allows a successfully burn + verify

* if the media is rated as 2x (and drive knows this and has a write strategy for the brand/ mid code then sure this is probably the best speed to use. (there are really too many factors with regards to the finished products burn quality)
