Anyone know what media code these woudl be? It’s hard to tell what speed they’re rated at from the ad.

Also, Best Buy has 50pk Verbatim 8X +/R discs for $19.99.

All sales begin today (11/28).


#2

At any rate, they would be at least 4x. Maxell 4x DVD for US$0.4 is far better than anything else. If 8x, just even better.


#3

I went to my Office Depot and all the DVD+R 50pk Maxell were made in taiwan and rated at 4x (I would guess RICOHJPNR01). They had 3 spindles of DVD-R 50pk Maxell which were made in japan. I got two spindles of the DVD-R, they are MXL RG02. I’m currently testing them out at 4x, 6x, and 8x on my Pioneer 108 wit nil’s firmware.


#4

Just got back from my local office depot. the maxell i was able to find were 50pk dvd+rs and they’re only rated at 4x. in comparison, wouldn’t the verbatims be a better but for the same price with higher speed ratings?


#5

One more thing, I found this coupon code in another forum, which will sweeten up the Maxell blanks a little bit. Add 3 packs of the Maxell 50pks (+ or -) and during checkout, use the coupon code 23896353 to get $10 off $50+ purchase. The total for me came to be $54.28 AFTER tax was added (shipping is free).

I just got a Made in Taiwan 50pk of -R. They were closing the store so I didn’t have time to scour the place for a Japan-produced spindle, but it looks like they were all from Taiwan.

Anyway, they’re RITEKG04. Hopefully they’re good ones and not some of the crap they’ve been putting out lately.


#7

My local Office Depot only had 4x media. The DVD-R was a mixture of RITEKG04 and MXLRG02. I assume the +Rs were RICOHJPNR01, but I wasn’t in the mood for any of those media codes. Freaking Best Buys around here all out of the Verbatim 8x :frowning:

A nice burn on the Maxell G04s from my Pioneer 106D. A little high PO/PIF?

@ Two Degrees

Did you try shopping online? I bought my 50pk Verbatim 8X DVD-R from best buy online for $19.99 and shipping was free. had to pay tax tho, doh!


#10

The Verbatim deal at Best Buy is for the NON-Datalife Plus and I thought those Verbatim disks were made by CMC?

If that is the case the Maxell is clearly the better buy.


#11

lemmonl5, the Best Buy discs are MCC discs. Verbatim has all but dropped the Datalife and Datalifeplus brands. I have a spindle of the 8x -Rs, they are simply called Verbatim DVD-R but media code is MCC02RG20, and I previously had a spindle of the +Rs and they were MCC003.


#12

just picked up some +R for $20, the sale is through Saturday. They were made in Taiwan, media code ROCOHJPN R01 :slight_smile:


#13

I started to get one of the Maxell 4x +R spindles, but I had recently gotten a 25-disc spindle and they turned out to be Ritek R02, so I didn’t want to risk it.


#14

I was at my local Office Depot yesterday (Thursday) and saw nothing but empty shelves for the +R. Plenty of -R but I don’t use -R discs.


#15

I’m about to order 100 Verbatims DVD-R 8x with MCC02RG20 id to use with my Pioneer 106D.
I don’t know if i’m doing the right thing.

Please help me as soon as possible! :sad:
