Mine were PRINCO which I picked up this a.m. Haven’t done a full scan yet but I’m fairly confident these are dog$hit which will get returned.

The bulk packaged CompUSA media is made by Princo. Burned about 6 so far without problems using a firmware upgraded NEC 2100a that was upgraded to an NEC-2500a with firmware found on the Dangerous Brothers Web-Site

Mine are OptodiscOR4, and I burnt over 20 discs already and they burnt fine at 4x with my benQ DW1620. The PI average is 17, max at 21. So the PI value is very low. Just hoping that the life of the discs are good for a few years.

:wink: WOW, This was one of the best deals all year!
These check as INFOME brand, never heard of em’. They test at:
1- 2.4 -4-6-8X DVD +R .
I Have burned 20+ with NEC ND 3500AG drive NOT one failure at 8X. I do
not use -R so I have no info. on them. Wish I would have grabbed more.

I know I am kinda late to the discussion but I bought these disks (3 +R’s and 1 -R) but just got around to using them. The -R’s were Princo’s and were returned (they wouldn’t let me exchange them for +R’s believe it or not) but the +R’s are INFOME. Here I was thinking this was worse than the CMC’s I usually get from CompUSA but so far in my Cyberhome DX162D they work just fine. Don’t know what the other two spindles are but I hope they work too :stuck_out_tongue:

They tried to sub those for tdk’s that were on sale a little while back. Obviouslly I didn’t take them (figured they would be princos). I talked to the store manager and got the tdk’s (long story). Glad to hear that they are working for you but I think I’ll pay a little more (got 100 tdk ricohjpnr01 for 30$).
