I've used these discs before and had no probs with them - about 1 failed disc out of 200 discs

' These were very, very popular at the old price but while promotional stocks last we've managed to shave almost 10% off the price and you can now buy these full-face printable 8x DVD-R discs for just £11.99 per 100.

We are a little worried that some customers may not buy these because they are TOO CHEAP and at this price they can't be any good. Please don't make this mistake. These discs are very good and tremendous value for money!

When people talk about the "dye", what does it really mean?? :?

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure what the dye part means, but as I back up a lot of dvd's, I tend to stick with ones that hardly ever fail when I'm burning and give an excellent quality picture, and these are one of the best bargains I've used so far.

I don't think I'm very technical with these things and just tend to go from experience with products :-D

Often come close to buying from SVP then see their minimum £5 delivery charge and ditch the order.

Meanwhile free delivery from HMV on their admitedly limited range of DVD-Rs makes it difficult to order from SVP unless you need a truckload.

The DVDRs have a dye on the opposite side to the label.

When you record to a DVDR the laser 'burns' a sppot on the surface of the dye to make it non reflective which corresponds to a zero in binary. the reflective parts give a one.

The dyes can and do degrade, this is caused by many things the most common being heat and light. Better dyes are more resistant to this

Better dyes are more reliable too, giving a better chance of avoiding a bad burn commonly called a coaster.

The best dyes are made by Taiyo Yuden (TY02 & TY03) followed by Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. (the MCC series of dyes).

Some are notoriously bad, the Optodisc one for example.

Prodisc are in the bottom half of the list, I personally wouldn't touch them but they are probably OK for short term storage, just don't expect them to last for years.

Actualy, the dye is on the same side as the label

Technically you are right but the DVDr burns from the non label side

these are great discs at a great price - it's a pity i don't need to get any...
