Are these media’s any good.


PHILIPS DVD-R 16x SCREW PACK WITH HANDLE

As I’ve read Philips is using media from a number of supliers. CMC, RITEK, MBI, INFOMEDIA, OPTODISC
So i don’t know what to expect. I’ve read about people who have bought batches of Philips media and they were all different MID.

So what MID could these Philips DVD-R’s be

Next



Datawrite GREY DVD-R 16x

I’ve bought free boxes of these 6 months ago and they were ProdiscF2 and they were excelent. But now I’ve read that the quality has dropped.
These can also be MCC 03RG20 but some say a fake .
So has anybody used these lately and how is the quality.

and last



RITEK DVD-R 16x , BLUE TOP

I’ve search a lot about these ones and I can’t find anything. I think that they might be RitekF1. Has anybody tries these and how are satisfied with them.

Thanks

Datawrite and unbranded Ritek are both crapshoots.
Ritek: If you want Ritek, don’t buy unbranded or no-name brands, buy it under a real name brand (Ridata, Traxdata) and avoid -R 8X.
Datawrite: E-net stuff, and can be good or bad in a totally unpredictable fashion, whatever the MID is.

The Philips, I can’t tell.

AFAIK those ‘candy spindles’ as they’re called are CMC. Most Philips media is CMC, so that would be the safe guess.

Imation, TDK and various budget media use those spindles as well, all CMC Mag.
