Last week, the 25-pack of TDK 8x DVD+R DL was on sale at Office Depot for $20, and I had a $10off$20 coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket, so I grabbed one for $10 after coupon. I've never used this MID before, since normally, I only use Verbatim or Sony MIS DL media (MKM 001). However, since the media was cheap, I figured I could take a chance, just to see how poorly it would do. With the exception of a spike here or there, my best burns are at 4x, and they look similar to the scan below (6x and 8x burns are not so hot).
Is it acceptable? Would you trust it's longevity? Is anyone getting better results with a Pioneer?
