25pk Sony 4X DVD+/-R $14.94

I just saw in today’s (10/10) Staples ad that they have both the Sony 4X + and - media on sale for $14.94. Both spindles are Made in Taiwan. I was wondering if anyone know these media are worth the price or whether they could be burned at higher speed (ie. Sony 8X DVD-R @ 16X)?

Sony 4x +R is usually RICOHJPNR01.

Don’t know much about the -R, but if the +R and -R are priced the same, then I don’t see any reason why you’d want the -R.

Thx for your reply.

If the Sony 4X DVD+Rs are indeed RICOHJPNR01, would you happen to know what’s the highest speed these medias can handle on the NEC 3500A?

The 3500 will burn them @ 8x with stock firmware. I don’t belive that you would want to try to burn these at a higher speed than that.

i can burn them at 8 with nero but with creater it will only burn at 4

The -R are SONY04D1… I think the 3500A can also burn it at 8X… or was it 12x…? Check Liggy’s beta8 firmware…
