A couple of years ago Newegg gave me a “freebie” cakebox of 50 +R “no name” shiney silver DVDs, which I never had any trust in, so they sat in a closet collecting dust since then. I believe they were called AVG brand (or some three letter name) but I have long since tossed away the brand name collar label. All I remember is they were made in China and that was bad enough… so I was only saving them in case I needed some giveaway DVD media.
Well, today I was curious what the MID was and was surprized it was a fairly well known MID. But being MIC I figured they were fakes so I burned one on one of my 203B’s that hates TYG02/03 and then scanned it on my Liteon 20A1L just for giggles.
Holy Crap! That is the best scan I’ve ever gotten from any MID or burner – including TYG01. Roxio stated it could be burned at up to 16X but I expected it to be more like 8x, so burned it at that.
The hub code states: OTC+R86060N0 R16 0505 +R 1~16x
I didn’t know they made 16x media a couple of years ago. Think this stuff is a good fake… or what??? All I know is it scans better than all my TY, MCC, SONY08D1, and RICOH_JPN MIDs and plays video/TRT’s @16x without a single glitch…
