I found some of these on sale at $2.97 for a pack of 15. This is cheaper than a regular pack of DVD+Rs. My question is, do you have to use these with an inkjet printer or can you just write on it with a black marker like with regular DVD+Rs? I just wanted some feedback before I actually buy them. Will the ink from the marker run or smudge on these types of discs?
A Sharpie-type marker will work fine with inkjet printable discs.
Mind if I ask where you found this incredible deal? And are they made in Taiwan or made in Japan?
Probably at Staples or Office Depot.
Nice if they burn & play ok,
Yes, where? The MIJ 25 packs go for $13.88 at Walmart…
I found these on the web at Best Buy Canada. They don’t have anymore to order online with shipping, but I notice you can order them online if you go to the store to pick them up. As for where they’re made, I don’t know. I only saw these on the web. However, I’ve used Maxells before with no problems, and I’m hoping these will work just as well.
I just noticed Future Shop Canada selling the same thing on sale for $13.59. So I think I will get a few packs at Best Buy for sure. At this price, I don’t think it would be a big lose to try them.
I had about 100 of them, the old one is MIJ but only burn as good as Sony 8x MIT, B to B+ in my book, good buy any way
Thanks for posting. My nearest store has one in stock - although it could very well be misplaced/stolen/phantom stock. I placed an order, and even if it doesn’t end up panning out, it’s ok since I’ll be in the area on Tuesday anyway
it is good for short term in my book, most of my stock are TY or YD 002 I just bought them to test out
Are these good discs?
Made in Japan (real?) with hub code Q171BJ284-2908816.
I bought mine from Future Shop ($13.59) and had them price match Best Buy ($2.97). The total came to under $2 per 15-pack. I cleaned out one store, but if these are a good buy, I’ll visit another Future Shop.
Hmm, that’s not a hub serial system I’m familiar with. What is the MID on those discs?
2.4 X - 4 X - 8 X - 8.0 X - 12 X
I dont know it is real or not burn I dont have any coastal withit, the Qua. scan is not even close to TY
I bought 12 of the +Rs for 1.67 each after price match witch turned out to be 1.90 with taxes. And bought 2 or the -Rs for the same price. Just opened up a +R and indeed it’s Maxell 002s, now let’s see how they burn in my pioneer 111L. The price comes out to 12.5cents per dvd canadian which isn’t too bad.
Here is a scan of the +R maxells burned on a pioneer 111L @12X which is the fastest speed allowed. I’ll test the -R shortly and report on that one too. The MID for the -Rs is MXL RG03.
