Just to let UK users know, today I got a cardboard boxed pack of 5 jewel cased Maxell 16x discs from ASDA with MIJ on the box, and they’re MAXELL 003.
Oh yeah baby…nice one, Kev - if I see any at my own local ASDA, I shall snap up as many as I can.
I did look on Tuesday, there were none there that I saw, but I’m going again Sunday…I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
BTW, be sure to let us know how they burn for you.
I’m pleased as punch at the find - my ASDA is usually pretty bad for media. I’m saving them as I’ve got nothing good enough for them
Don’t forget, they must say MIJ on the box. They also look brighter than the Maxell RICOHJPN R03 that I got previously.
I would have been too (and so is my ASDA :Z). And you’re gonna make us wait for scans, huh?
OK, here’s a scan of one done in a BenQ 1650 BCHC. Savour the excellence
Verrrrry nice. I see you gave in to temptation
O/T: Where did you get your BenQ from Arachne?
I got it from PC World as a Philips 1660, then crossflashed it. Â£39, which to me is worth it 'cause so far it’s proving to be a very nice drive
Edit: hope it burns those Maxells as well as yours (even though I’m using different firmware)…if it does, I’ll be well pleased!
Same here - mine was the Â£19 one from SVP and was also a 1660 that I crossflashed
Ahhhh, cool :D…well, it certainly likes those Maxells. Can’t wait to get hold of some
Keep your fingers crossed - the only reason they’re in my ASDA is because the RICOHJPN R03 boxed ones were sold out before.
Oh drat…my local one has plenty of the cardboard boxed ones, which I assume are also RICOHJPN R03 :(…mind you, when I was looking for MAXELL002, they were there alongside the Ritek R03s, so there’s still hope.
I’m pretty certain that was the reason, as they’ve only been stocked up very recently. Still, it’s more than worth the time checking
Kevatcrewe , could you please repost up the full scan information for the scan you posted, as it seems to be cut off
Sorry, I had to do that because of my computer. It seems to be reallt iffy this evening. That was all I could get up at the time. I’m really busy with college work, but I promise I’ll do it if I remember
Grrrr, my local ASDA still doesn’t have them. I’m gonna have to mug Kev at this rate
I picked some of these up yesterday and am very pleased with the results! Highly recommended even if they are a little pricey.
Burned in BenQ 1650 BCHC @ 12X, SB On, WOPC OFF.
The Maxell 4X I picked up from Currys turned out to be YUDEN000 T01. All in all, a good days shopping!
The T01 was also burned in the BenQ, SB On, WOPC Off.
Someone else asking for a mugging
Wait till you see the T01 scan I added using your favorite button!
The Maxell 003 was burned with WOPC Off, not on as I previously stated. :o
Very nice indeed - I have a new favourite disc
O/T: Arachne, please don’t be angry at me
