I guess I'll be the guinea pig. I just ordered 25. If they are indeed ricohjpnd00, I've used them before:
Maybe my NEC will have better luck with them than my DW1640 did. In any case, I can use them for the less important burns, or the burns that are only a little over the dvd5 size. At ~1.30 a disk shipped (using the 10% coupon), they're almost half the price of the current going rate for Verbs.
