I have heard good things about ritek dvds, but I have heard that the nec 3500 will not burn the g05 ritek at 8X with standard firmware. Any sucessfully burn them at 8x?
It will burn them at 8x with the stock firmware, in (very) good quality that is. What you heard is wrong.
… although it’s not my favourite brand, I made a test with G05 and firmware 2.08
. . I think a very reasonable result, even better than standard-firmware
