My conclusion: the Mediarange and the Moviestyle are real junk media. Besides having very bad scans (and these posted are not exceptions, Imade a few more), you can litterally look through them! Apparently they are missing the extra dye that ‘normal’ DVD’s have… So that doesn’t give much hope for long time storage qualities either.
The TDK and Fuji’s are disapointing as well. I’ve seen good scans here on this forum with TDK, and with Fuji I myself have burnt hunderds of them in the past without any problem. Scanning a few of those old ones give good results, much better than the new one posted above. Also, they now look much ‘cheaper’ then the purple ones I always got. Well, I will use what I have left for second back-ups…
The Verbs are the clear winners here, no doubt about that.
As an additional note, this test makes clear that at least the Fuji’s and the Verbs benefit very much from SB.
