Have bought tdk for many months and find the product whether cd or dvd to be excellent for all uses. Quality of shipment was great.

    It all depends on how long you want to keep the data. They are fine for everyday files and some music but I wouldn't archive anything on them.

Yo-

At $12.50 per 100 shipped - the price is certainly right - and being TDK’s - probably a safe buy-

Suggestion - for best results - burn audio at 16x and data at 24x - much better shot at getting best results [I]every[/I] time-eh!!

I’ve had great experience with my Ritek branded TDK CD-Rs. (Look for Prodick style box and “Lock/Open” font.)

I burn mostly data at 48x, for every day use, and not a single coaster yet.

My drive is NEC-7200S. It might be drive dependent, though…

  1. Ritek CD-Rs burn very well, second only to TY and Verbatim AZO.

  2. The AD-7200S is a good CD-R burner.

Most TDK CD-Rs are made by CMC, and most people don’t have a DVD burner that is good at burning CDs, so your situation is slightly different. The advice given by alan1476 applies to those other situations.

For some reason, all of my TDKs burned a few years ago turned a tannish yellow color. They still work, but I try to stay away from them now. I did buy a 100-pack from Circuit City last year. They were made in China. :frowning:
