[QUOTE=midders;2103496]I bought these Verbatims, specially, on the advice of the manual for the crappy Matsushita DVD-RAM drive built in to my laptop, but they still only offered a max write speed of 2.4x
I’ll get some Taiyo’s next; anyone know if there’s any difference between branded and unbranded Taiyo DVD+R, assuming that they are definitely manufactured by Taiyo and not just being passed off?
Ouch, that’s Matshita for you - I’d blame the drive rather than the disc in that case I think
As for branded vs. unbranded TYs…me personally, I’ve noticed no difference. I have branded (Verbatim) T02s, and also unbranded printable T02s, and both are excellent.
The unbranded printables were bought from SVP though, so I think it depends where you shop and how trustworthy they are.
