You're welcome :flower:
You're welcome. The only brilliance involved is from our members posting their results with the re-designed Panasonics since a few of us noticed they were burning great a bit back;). I've not seen a single bad experience with them in the last year. Even Stiftung Warentest ranks them above Verbatims. I think you can safely save some money here :).
If you would like to get as far away from those Riteks as you can without spending a fortune, you might consider these Pannys. Just slightly more expensive than the Falcon value, cheaper than the Pro. Our members are getting impressive results with them, and recent price drops from Japanese sellers is making them a good option from what I've seen.
Stay well away from a "TDK" labeled spindle. They will likely be either Riteks or MBIs, and B grade examples of what those manufacturers are capable of producing, from what we are seeing.
