MAM-E Mitsui DVD-R 4X any good with Plex?

Hi peeps,

I saw MAM-E Mitsui DVD-R 4X in the online cdfreaks shop
I was wondering if they are any good with the Plex708
also I was wondering if they serve well for all purposes:

  • playable in standalone dvd players
  • playable in ps2 (games & video)
  • to save data on
  • to store important stuff for a long time

I hope someone has some experience with these and would like to help me out here :slight_smile:

thanks in advance :bow:

This particular media has already been mentioned by me a couple of times @the forum.

I too was surprised when seeing it for the very 1st time. So it’s a fact. :wink:

thanks already for the replies

are you sure this is the same media sold at the cdfreaks shop, they are in spindles of 10 or 25?
this would be pretty good :slight_smile:
how about the compatibility and stuff?

you see, it’s gonna be a present for my dad’s christmas so I don’t wanna give hime any crappy media :cool:

No, unfortunately I cannot be sure about it, 'coz mine wasn’t bought there.

The MAM-E Mitsui sold in the CDFreaks shop is not TY. Others have reported problems with it, so it’s best to stay away from it, IMHO.

damn, thanks for the help
I almost bought 50 of them

are there any good dvd-r or dvd+r in the cdfreakshop for the pureposes mentioned above?

I only see Princo and MAM, frankly neither is worth much.

The mitsui DVD-R discs that is made by mitsui is garbage - even worse than princo, got a load of them here.

Works acceptable in pioneer DVR-106. But sucks in Plextor PX-708A, LG GSA-4040B and all Lite-On’s.

thanks a lot for the help here
I found a new possibility, verbatim dvd-r on a spindle of 25
i heard they were mitsubishi’s
will start a new thread on this
thanks again
