I was in to Future Shop today and purchased a package of 50 Memorex DVD +R for $24.99.

The media code is RITEK-R02-001.

Riteks at $0.50 Canadian. What an awesome deal

Good price, crappy media: see media test results from:

From all the Memorex dvd+r media, RICOHJPNR01 seems to work best, others don’t even come close! :Z


#3

Can you post a K-probe scan?

Has anyone bought the Maxells from Future Shop? I was wondering what the media code was…


#4

The Maxell +R media code is RICOHJPNR01

I posted a scan earlier this week see http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=96285&page=9&pp=25

Thanks

They also have BenQ DVD-R and +R 50 packs for $25 as well… Don’t know the manufacturer code though.

Avoid the Kodak -R 4x though… $34 for 50, $4 for 5, and they’re crappy “VDSPMSAB 01”


#6

Benq DVD+r is made by Daxon. NOt sure about the - media.


#7

I read somewhere, that the dvd-r are SONY04D1.


#8

BenQ are indeed SONY04D1…50 for $25. Of course I don’t know if that’s good or bad. :confused:

Also picked up some Maxell… 10 for $15. Wasn’t sure about them, but they come up as TYG01. These should be good, eh? :iagree:


#9

When I got there, all the memorex DVD+R 50 pack had been sold out and I got a DVD-R 50 pack instead, 8X for the same price. The media code is CMC MAG. AE1, what do you guys think of this then??


#10

Good.

Excellent, some of the best media there is.


#11

Depends on your burner. The NEC drives like / love them, others might not.

Average media, one of the better el cheapo media, especially if you have a NEC drive.


#12

Bought a pack of the +R, they show up as Ritek R02

In a Liteon 812S flashed with 832S VS0A, not the best media, but also far from the worst.


#13

they are good enough for me…i usually test with a benq800 firmware then try a 822 firmware

first burn at 8x produced a bad disc…it worked but skipped alot in the dvdplayer

burn at 8x again and it was fine…

then upgraded to benq822 and burn at 8x, then 4x

i think i’ll just burn at 4x, its fine like that and i dont mind waiting another 6mins

i bought them at staff price so i saved $5 off the retail

PI 741 = 8X on Benq800
PI 11 = 8X on Benq800 (this was wierd how it was good disc)
PI 28 = 8X on Benq822
PI 15 = 4X on Benq822






#14

Has anybody gotten any other media code other then the RITEK-R02-001 for the 50 dvd+r pack at futureshop?


#15

The 50pack Memorex dvd+r media is RITEK R02, the 25pack is RICOH JPNR01.

Cheers,

@ aitch:
CMC is the worst from memorex media, I guess you had bad luck this time…


#19

Future shop has a sale for a 50 pack at $24.99CAD ($18US) +R or -R
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&dept=2&WLBS=fsweb17&sku_id=0665000FS10047106&catid=12501&newdeptid=2

They are probably made by Daxon

Burner will likely be an LG 4120B. Haven’t bought one yet

Thanks

Damn, just noticed the Memorex +R and -R are the same price. I suppose they would be the better media?
