I got some Optical Quantum 4x bd-r’s from Newegg:
Sure, people will say stick with Verbatim 2x,4x bd-r’s (if your budget will permit) but you WILL be paying at least 15% more for the discs. For what I’m putting on them, I’m willing to gamble. Besides, for the next few hundred GB I’m concurrently backing up the SAME data on JVC value-line DVD-R’s. I’m in TRUST, but verify mode for at least one year, hehe…
** Just a word of caution… If I were you, I wouldn’t go crazy writing on ANY bd-r discs that are NOT inkjet printable… as there is new evidence that has ‘come to light’ that writing to ‘logo top’ non-IJP label discs will cause pre-mature reduced lifespans of the media. So, for now, I’m just using Post-Its to put on top of the Disc plastic holders in my multi-disc wallet cases for labeling purposes. Originally, it was thought that the marker ink wouldn’t be a factor in bleeding past the polycarbonate… but that isn’t always the case. Not worth taking a chance on discs which are 5-10x larger in terms of density (smaller pits/grooves).
Lastly, I burned these begining late December… I’ll get back to everyone in a year’s time & let you know how they’re doing. Maybe by that time LG will be so nice & let us “SCAN” with updated firmware??
