About 5 years ago I made the mistake to buy a 50 pack of Tuffdisc DVD+R DL 2.4x media (CMC MAG D01), 50% were coasters!

Now 5 years later the discs which burned ok still look quite ok:

All discs …
Tuffdisc DVD+R DL 2.4x
CMC MAG D01
burned with Plextor PX-760A (1.07 free) @ 4x or 2.4x, or NEC ND-4570A (1.03) @ 2.4x:

Verbatim brand DL
MKM-001 mid code burned at 4x in a BenQ 1620 in March 2006
Not very pretty now, but seems to play ok.

And another test of one of my DL burns.

Verbatim brand MKM-001
Burned in an Optiarc 7240s at 4x in November of 2011
Holding up better, but give it a few more years and we’ll see.

And the last one for today.

Verbatim DL +R
MKM-001 mid code
Burned at 4x, December 2009, but not certain of the drive used. Could be Pioneer 215L or, more likely, my Samsung SH-S203B. My 215L went bad pretty quickly.

This is another mediocre test result.
