I’ve been having terrible trouble here in Thailand tracking down any printable DVD-R or DVD+R that work. Basically the choice is Princo or Ritek G05. i.e. Garbage.
However I’ve just found a shop selling Philips inkjet printable 1-8x DVD-R and DVD+R in spindles of 25.
I’ve bought one pack of the DVD+R and I’d like to find out which factory they’ve come from and if they’re likely to be any good before buying a few hundred tomorrow morning.
Unfortunately I am away from home so I don’t have my own computer so I can’t tell you the media code. But here’s a description of the disc:
Serial number on the pack: AR84-REM/MZ/05-004 G1 2D
Serial number in the centre of one disc: V1-04CH1507264357C04
They’re very nicely packaged and feel really good quality, the back is a deep purple dye, the front is white printable to the hub and there’s a Philips logo and DVD+R in the centre of the disc WITHIN the printable surface (basically they’ve made the logo by missing part of the printable surface - i heard Verbatim might be doing the same recently).
Can anyone tell me where these likely came from and if they’re likely to be any good? Plus any preference for the -R or +R? My writer is a Benq 1640.
