Re: Windata DVD+R 8x on sale at Microcenter..

made in Hong Kong according to label. I do not think they are fakes though as they burn OK (not as good as my Fuji T02s though). My guess in looking at the inner ring is they have a small defect in the clear plastic (scratch mark) so they sold them to Windata, though I do not think it hurt quality much.

My take on all these Fake theory's on this site is that more likely they are just lower quality spindles of the same Type Disks..I seriously doubt Windata would knowingly fake mid codes. And probably true for other supposed fake cases shown here.

12x burn..not bad

Re: Windata DVD+R 8x on sale at Microcenter..

Having just burned a full spindle of these, my GSA-4163B (1.04 firmware) would only burn about half of them at 12x; the rest it either stayed at 6x or briefly went to 8x then fell back to 6x again. All the burns were good, just quite a few stayed lower speed.

What would prevent them? It's not like they have an immaculate reputation to worry about.

You can't be serious: the PIE are fine but the PIF are more than 3X above the DVD spec; and it is not a couple of isolated spikes either.
With the shipping fee factored in, I cannot imagine why anyone would want to pay $37 for a hundred of these when for $35 you can get a hundred of genuine MCC003 that burns on par with (actually, on my setup even slightly better than) Taiyo Yuden.
