Great price. Cheers.

good price for double layer :-)

Anyone used these for 360 backups?

Reviews on other sites are a bit mixed, anyone actually tried these?

Also Aone dual layer available from playtrade for £9

Dont know how the 2 brands compare.

the Aone dual layers are also on Ebuyer for £6.98

Very good price

Note that the Aone's are not printable. That's an important issue for me.

Yes they are...

Just get these ones £7 odd for 25 full face printable type.

Just so everyone knows this is a rubbish deal. Memorex are utter garbage (so are Aone) End of the day the dye types used in both discs are lowest of the low quality. You will have to burn the Aone discs at 4x if you don't want problems around the layer break. (even then you will still have a lot of bad burns).

Lots of people don't have a clue and think these Aone discs are just right for them.

To those people do this...

Do a pass in nero CD-DVD speed and check the curve of the reading speed. Make sure you check it in a drive that can't burn DVD discs ...Wait for the drop in speed at the layer break. I'm saying this because this is how your Xbox 360 will be reading these discs, If you're selling your xbox 360 backups then it doesn't really matter lol. But in a month or 2 those discs won't be reading around the layer break.

Anyway who cares, just wanted to say "Memorex" is not a brand name as far as optical media is concerned!

Good price

These discs are good quality for backup purposes albeit a little slow at 2.4x,

It is however recommended that backups are burned at lower speeds in order to ensure minimum errors when using them on your machine.

I would personally recommend these as they usually sell for £19.99 (special offer) at Maplin. (normally 39.99). I buy the verbatims where possible, but these will do for a tenner.

I would stay away from Aone... but memorex have been much better quality than Aone... not as good as Verbs. (just to be clear) - worth a Tenner!

dont seem bad for branded, would like ot see how they stack up against Aone for xbox backups

Only use Verbatim for 360 backups. Other brands have read errors after a couple of months or so.

What if you just install the game onto the hard drive after you have burned it, surely these disk would be fine for that ?

What a load of old tosh, I have always used AOne disks for 360 Backups, burn at 2.4x in a Pioneer Writer and not had any problems with longeivity of burns.

According to this site Aone use Ricoh Dye.

poor quality disks i prefur the verbs by a long shot on d/l.

Not good discs. If you still want to be watching your movies or playing your bent 360 games in 12 months time buy either Traxdata's or as others have mentioned, Verbatim.

That's what I like to read.
I have a Pioneer rewriter and bought a 10 pack of AOne for £2.99 (free delivery) off Ebuyer this morning

They don't use Ricoh dye...They just stole the atip code and use some crappy rubbish.

It's so rubbish that my old Pioneer 111L stock latest stock firmware forces burns at 2.4x for that dye type -as in it bases it on the media code in the atip. Says it all really.

I have used Aone and have had a wide variety of results.

Use Verbatim if you can afford them, if not use something else and take a chance on quality.

Ok Mr Expert!.....if Aone just use some crappy rubbish dye and clone the atip code, then please tell me what crappy dye they use considering there are only a few Dual Layer Dyes, CMC dye, Ritek dye, Ricoh dye and those with MKM (Verbatim) dye.

Can you please explain why they would utilise another one of those dyes then clone the atip? Can you give evidence that the disks are fake so places like Scan Computers whom I have been reliably buying these "fake" disks from can be aware of their illegal practices!

Awaiting Robo989s answer so that Scan Computers can update the details to these disks so they can change it from "Manufactured by RICOH & branded under the up and coming Aone umbrella, this disc has set a new precedent in Dual Layer pricing." to "Manufacturered by AOne using an unknown dye"

For 360 backups, and let's face it that's what people would be using Dual Layers for, I find that Aones are cheaper and have a very, very good success rate. Infact, I don't use anything else for my 360 backups.
