i wonder what some of your results have been with ritek g04’s?
Some time ago I tried some RitekG04 (branded Traxdata) with my Liteon 451S and results were varied…
The first cakebox (10 pieces each) gave very good results
PI ~6 & PO ~ 0.015
The second and the third (which I bought after the good results with the first one) gave acceptable results
PI ~ 62 & PO ~ 0.110
At first I thought it was the firmware update but when I backflashed and the results didn’t vary I understood it was the media to be worse.
I still have some of the third cakebox left but haven’t tried it with the 2500, yet
is it just the ridata’s that are crappy?
I’ve never tried this media, sorry!
should i buy the non-labeled g04’s
From what I read here around, the re-branded RitekG04 are of very variable quality, some are very bad, some acceptable, some good…it’s just that the re-branded ones are of inferior grade (B,C,D etc) and are susceptible to very great variations in quality.
, or should i continue burning with memorex dvd-r’s with the blue dye? b/c they work fine and with no blotchyness
If you’ve found a good brand and keep finding it from your supplier keep it!! (if the price stays good, of course!)
Hope that helps
Live long and prosper
