Excellent deal, very hot

Anyone know how these would fare against the usage of xbox 360 back-ups? Especially in quality and durability?

Poor

you will get some that will not read back the 2nd layer

some 360's wont read them at all, or will give choppy video / dirty disk errors

some will degrade quite quickly, leaving a useless disk after a couple of months

BUT

They are very cheap! and do work (on the whole) on 360's

Beware - Price is in line with a 10 pack, Photo shows a 10 pack. Methinks you might get a... 10 pack.
(Or a cancelled order).
Worth a pop though in case? :thumbsup:


EDIT: Ignore me, unless they've made a major error this is fine. The 10 pack is listed at ]£2.50 (But it takes away the Free Delivery)

Heated up BTW.

Excellent price. Can normal DVD writers write onto these discs?

But how have they worked out for you?

Only if its a dual layer writer. A lot are these days,.,.,

Hmmm. XBOX 360 normally only likes Verbatim ones (i.e. expensive). Whenever I've tried cheap ones they never work...

These will be fine for Backing up DATA and MUSIC - MOVIES etc and playing back on your XB or PS3 or PC etc etc..
They are crappy for XBOX 360 though, stay clear of them.
peeps should know this who r regular to XBOX 360 stuff... These are Pi$$ poor for that and will hardly play back on most Drives.. Stick to the ones u know.... and u know what they are :whistling:

using these for YEARS without any issue on BENQ & LITE-ON Drives. Excellent Media for the 360, I use the printable ones..
Verbatim are great, but way to Expensive prepared to these that do the exact same job. :santa:

I find the ritek hit and miss.They work fine on my dvd player,but had a few people complain the second layer won't work on their dvd players.Verbatim are the best but near £1 each

Cheaper than paying for games like me though you cheap *******

dual layer disks i stick to verbatim for max quality and life lasting, def not these just not reliable.

Verbatim are best for the 360 but AOne discs work very well for me and they're much cheaper. 25p a disc.

Am I missing something here? It seems you have to pay at least £1.95 more for delivery. How do I get the £12.49 delivered price?

Looks like they may have originally made a mistake with the free delivery and have now fixed it :?
Still not a bad price with the £1.95 though

Cool, glad it wasn't just me being stupid. I was tempted to get a tub but with the bad reviews and now the extra del charge, I'll leave it for now. Still got some space on the External HDD so not that desperate yet.

with the cost of hard drive now i don't think it's worth buying these dual layers, 500gb around £36 western digital + delivery or pair up with someone and go over the £50 to get free delivery at ebuyer :oops:, remember it takes you time to burn the dvds...

Yeah but the pirates can't use hard drives to load games on the 360, they need dual layer disks. Have never trusted DL disks for backing up photos etc (iphoto is a ****** because it keeps everything in one big folder, so you're almost forced into buying an external drive anyway).

My order was just delivered - so next day delivery packed in 5 x 10 pack sealed spindles.

I am now hoping for zero coasters!! :thumbsup:

These are different dye (RICOHJPN-D01-02) so unfair to compare (although these get bad press too).

The Arita you mention have the same dye (RITEK...D01) as the RiData ones that got slated :?
I've used the Arita and found to be reliable to burn but often failed to verify towards the end of the second layer... these so far so good :thumbsup:
