What are the top brand of DVD+rw’s for Lite-On’s? Are they same as the +r manufacturers - Sony (if TY), Verbatim, Maxell, Fuji (if TY). Does TY even issue a DVD rw disk?
I think Verbatim DVD+RW discs are supposed to be very good. They normally sell for $18 for a 10 pack at OfficeMax. About 3 weeks ago they went on sale for $10. Keep an eye out for that.
Will do. Thanks for the info.
Some time ago I grabbed 30 pack of Verbatim DVD+RW in Office Depot for $12
CompUSA had a 25pk TDK branded ( philips 004) for $9.99, which work OK on Liteon stand alones. I am not sure if they still have the sale price.
Yea their so good I get 5 burn’s max on a benq 1640 before I have to throw them out :Z
Fry’s Electronics has memorex brand on sale for $14.99 per Spindle of 25.
staples has sony on sale this week. 12.98 - $5 off coupon = 7.98 25pk
dont know the mid though
Probably either Ricoh or Sony made.
Usually Sony DVD+RW’s are a MID code of S11. Those are pretty quality.
See this thread on DVD RW media in the BenQ Form. The Sony’s could also be RicohJPN W11.
I use RW media frequently to transfer TV shows from my PC to my Divx-capable standalone DVD player. I only use DVD-R to archive a whole season and then only for shows I know I will want to view again in the future. So, the rewritable capability has uses for me.
I find that - no matter how careful I am - regular RW media gets scratched up and then doesn’t work properly.
So, I find that by far the best RW media is Verbatim 4x DVD+RW “Videogard” media that are “over 40 times more scratch resistant”.
This is cost effective, because they should last longer and not need replacing as often as cheaper RW’s.
The last two batches of Sony +RW were RICOHJPNW11. Usually this is good media. Mine burned on 4 different burners and were unreadable. The scans had PIF errors peaking near 100.
