Okay, I know Prodisc isn’t the greatest media in the world. I’ve recently started buying top grade media, I use YUDEN000T02 for DVD+R, MKM001 for DVD+R DL, and TY for CD-Rs. But I do have a couple spindles left over from before I started buying this media.
What I’m wondering is how good are my spindle of Fujifilm-branded PRODISCF02 DVD-Rs and my Maxell-branded Prodisc CD-Rs (both made in Taiwan). Like I said, I know they’re not the greatest which is why I use TY for most of my burning. But are these pure garbage? I seem to get that impression with some posts, but it don’t see how it be anywhere near as bad as Memorex media made by CMC. A lot of those CMC discs won’t even play in any equipment outside my computers, but the Prodisc ones will perfectly.
So I guess what I’m asking is even though I know they’re not top-notch, is this a matter of “yes, they’re fine for burning not-terribly-important stuff” or is it a matter of “throw them out because they’ll be dead in 6 months anyway” sort of thing? I’d like some honest, unbiased opinions.
