Is Office Depot Brand 4x DVD-RW made in Taiwan any good?They're currently on sale at $8 for a 25 pack.Today (Saturday, 03-31-07) may be the last day of the sale.
If they are Ritek media, they might be okay.
If they are Optodisc they probably aren't very good.
I have had very poor luck with cheap -RW or +RW media...
I haven't purchased them yet.Would Ritek or Optodisc be on the hub or somewhere else?
Videohelp.com lists it as RITEK W04, don't know if that helps or not.
I've used and continue to use these discs for over a year since they're one of the rare deals that you'll encounter in 4x -RW, or any RW media really. They work well for me, I use them in a standalone recorder mostly though sometimes on my burners. Just remember that you'll need to confirm that your device(s) support 4x -RW media, which won't be an issue with newer burners. Older burners and recorders are another story. P.S. - and yes they are Ritek W04.
They have the +RW at the same price.videohelp.com lists them as RICHOJPNW11The same 3 people left the same empty comments for both the +RW and -RW.It lists their setup with no results.
If this is what they turn out to be then they should be ok.
I bought the -R last time they had it at $8. I've used one or two of them a bunch of times and several once each. It is RitekW04. No problems so far, except one of my Apex stand alone players sometimes needs a 'power off reboot' to get the disc to read. Cycling the power does always get it to read ok though.
