Sold as “GQ” - Great Quality - seems to be a generic brand. This 25pack was the cheapest in the store. Top side of disc has GQ branding on it and is yellow, bottom is purple. Graph is kind of pretty, going off in two directions at once, but scary. Disc verified just fine in Nero 6.3.1.10 after burning at 4X. Needless to say, I won’t be buying this brand again!

Same spindle of “Great Quality” generic DVD-R. I thought burning at a slower speed would help things, but it didn’t. Scan in K’s Probe was still made at 4X speed, PI sum 8, PO sum 8.

Sold as CompUSA 1x DVD-R in 5-pack w/ jewel cases, sometime in 2003. Written at 1x on Pioneer 105.
