depends on the compatibility of these discs me thinks.
What do you mean? What does scratch resistance have to do with compatibility?
I don't think compatibility will be a factor. The coating isn't noticeable at all. What will make or break this media is the price. If they're like a $1-2 more per disc than normal DVD-R media.. thats too much for me.
now for the all impotant question. what does this coating do for the price of the media?
It'd be worth having a few around to save important stuff, like wedding video or baby videos on. I'd pay $5 more for something that will be reliable, and durable. That's stuff you can't just go re-record if something happens.
Yeah I agree with GezusK. I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for media that's of better quality.
what I meant is TDK discs at the moment are not the best, so are these going to be any better
Are there any Armour Plated CD-Rs ? I would buy some.
