With recent news about extremely poor quality of Ritek media. I thought to get some info on other cheap ebay media.

I got my first answer.

Optimum 4x BD-R = CMCMAG-BA3-000

note: had no issues with CMC


#2

Optical Quantum 4x BD-R = PHILIPR04

note: should be safe, no reported issues


#3

Gigablock 4x BD-R = OTCBDR 001 (Made in Macau)

Gigablock 4x also comes in 30pk made in Taiwan = MID unconfirmed

Note: no clue who makes OTC media, no info on quality

and what you think of the chinese ISMM media?


#7

Gigablock 4x BD-R (Taiwan) = CMCMAG-BA3-000


#8

Burned only one, failed burn towards the end.

On the other hand the few CMCMAG-BA3-000 I have burned so far have not failed but error levels on Quality scans are much higher than Verbatim and TDK’s.

I will be keeping a close eye on the CMC’s as well as the Riteks.

Great thread nekrosoft, good idea starting it.

We should have a sticky thread of the important Blu-Ray related topics.

Include for example this thread, Blu-ray Media thread, Ritek failure issue thread.

OTC = Optodisc. Country of origin marking is incorrect - all Optodisc media are being made in Taiwan.
Some quality scans of OTCBDR 001 media:

Yeah longevity is always the hardest thing to judge as no one knows until you start getting failures.
