I haven’t been around for a few days, so I’m late to the discussion. The +R discs are very good for fake MCC004, burning better than my genuine PAP6 MCC004. The -R fake MCC03RG20 are so-so with random PIF clumps but they still are perfectly readable, just not the greatest of scans. No stability problems with my 8x Playo AML002 or UME01 for over a year now, and no problems in the few months I’ve had my Playo ‘MCC004’.
Certainly they perform well enough for less important burns. If I needed any cheaper media I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them but I already have a couple spindles of these and a ton of other media so I have no need for media at this point. Long story short though, these perform decently and the claims of them being quick-degrading garbage are not accurate. No they wouldn’t be the best choice for critical data, but they’re not bad discs (particularly the +R discs).
