GSA-4163B 16x Media

I have just ordered my 4163B from Newegg ($67.00 shipped) and I would like some imput on what 16x media works well with this drive.

I know Verbatim 16x DVD+R looks great from the scans I have seen. I noticed Ala42 has MediaCodeSpeedEdit with people changing YUDEN000-T02 to YUDEN000-T03 and the scans look great also.

I have both Verbatim 16x DVD+R and YUDEN000-T02 but always like to try other medias.

If anyone can post some scans it would be most helpfull.


Check my posts here in the LG section about NOT hitting 16x with the Verbatim, (MCC004).
Can you do it with ease?

As I was reading through this forum yesterday I do remember your post.

My drive won’t come until Monday, then I will be sure to post my results.

Good results also with MCC 02RG20 burnt at 16x with 03RG20 strategt swap… I don’t use other media for the moment.


I also have a few 25 packs of this (Verbatim 8x) around.

Do you happen to have any scans? I would love to see them.

Here is a scan of an 8x Verbatim (MCC003) overspeeded to 12x :
