I bought a 100 pack spindle of Maxell 8x DVD+Rs today at FutureShop (in Canada) since they were on sale for $35 Canadian. I have no idea if these are good quality or not (because I’m a noob to this stuff). Since I intend to use them for archiving purposes, I want to know if I should exchange them.
The sides of the discs are rather lumpy, only the bottom layer though. The writing around the ring for the first disc is C6-02CH3504129611D18 (around the clear part in the centre, right before the hole) and VR5CH3-00013 around the purple ring. The dye on the bottom is purple (does this even matter?). Here is what KProbe has to say:
Should I return this batch and look for something that said “Made in Japan” as opposed to “Made in Taiwan”?
I have a Lite-ON 451s if that matters.
