Princo Budget vs Princo

The Portuguese market is being invaded by very cheap Budget Princo DVD-R media (yellow top)

I can buy it as low as 0,49€ each but I doubt it has the same quality as the white top Princo.

Anyone knows the difference between these 2 Princo types?

@bluesmoke: I've been warned once for discussing in Portuguese as this forum is not for Portuguese users only.

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

Sorry... but I don't agree with your coment.
I record my movies on princo dvd's and I don't have problems with them.
If you have problems, I don't understand Why!!! lol

Tradução:
Eu gravdo os meus filmes em dvd's da princo e não tenho problemas nenhuns com ele.
Se tu tens problemas, não percebo qual a razão!!! lol

I have yet to see any Princo media that is worth buying. Have you done any error rate scans on your early Princos? The pricetag is just rediculous. Have you tried looking at buying from the UK sites? You could get Verbatim TY for not much more than that. http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk. *EDIT* Yup, it works out to about .40 Euro per disc for a 25 pack of the Verbatim TY (including VAT). I realize that international shipping will probably make it closer to .50-.60 Euro per disc but for that small difference it is WELL worth the extra cost.

Comparing Princo to Princo is like comparing 2 guys toilets before flushing. Sorry.

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

Go to The Radio Popular, at Montijo and buy TDK -R 8x, it burns at 16x in all NEC. Only costs 11€.
Princo and Princo Budget are equal..

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

I bought yellow "budget" DVD-Rs, 1-4X speed, "for data"
from PRINCO (www.princobudget.com), some months ago.

Almost all of them have defects now.

I won't ever buy anything again from Princo.

Hi fliseto, welcome to CDFreaks!

Sorry to hear about your problems with Princo media.

Princo media is not hightly regarded around here, and you can see what favourite media people are voting for in these polls:

Which brands of DVD media are good for everyday use?

Which DVD+R media is best for long-term storage?

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

I didn't know princo had a budget disc, I guess that would be even lower quality than normal princo, which we all thought would be impossible since it's so crap.

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

At least no false expectations.
This could be very well the first time that fakes are significantly better than originals

Re: Princo Budget vs Princo

Well officially princo only makes A-grade media. Also Princo claims that chinese manufacturers have abussed there codes.

However some of there resellers claim that the budget branded stuff is overprint and B-grade.
