Daxon has quit the blank optical media business, and they will sell their production equipment to RiTEK.

Another one bites the dust…:sad:

Since it is going to be more or less for Blu-ray disc’s then that won’t effect me in the least bit
as I have no plans on buying any Ritek Blu-ray disc’s any time soon or any other brand of Blu-
ray disc’s as a matter of fact. I plan on sticking with my trusted brands of DVD discs until they
completely quit making DVD discs all together before I consider going to Blu-ray or what ever
format is out at that time. :iagree:

I discovered in my stashed boxes some old DVD+Rs in a spindle, marked with the CompUSA brand. DVD Identifier noted them to be Daxon AZ3 disks. Does anyone have any idea about these DVDs? Are they any good?

I had one good batch, and one not so good. At least, media seems pretty stable, I have no problems with them.

Underneath the CompUSA DVDs in the same spindle, I discovered a bunch of Sony DVD+Rs. This is the DVD Identifier info on them…

Could someone please comment on these too?

Was that in response to my message? Then, thank you. I am currently using the CompUSA DVD+Rs with my Samsung SE-S084C to create a system image back up of my Toshiba Netbook. :slight_smile: Keeping fingers crossed since it would need at least 7 DVD+Rs…

Daxon has manufactured a lot of media for Sony too, so that isn’t much of a surprise.

Daxon’s media are usually of pretty decent quality and you should not have any problems with them.

These Sonys were made by Daxon, just with Sony’s stampers and dye and their quality should be comparable to “DAXON AZ3” media.

I agree. I have a few DAXON 016S discs left myself, and I’ve been saving them :bigsmile:

The Sony MID has worked well for me in the past also.
