Anybody know how to find good Maxells? Or are there any good ones in the US? All the 16x +R I’ve found have been CMC MAG M01. :Z

The last Maxell media I bought was Ritek G05 and I will never buy Maxell again. Never, not for free. LOL.:bigsmile::bigsmile:

I’ve noticed a Maxell 100 pack without a little foam spacer that looked to be RICOHJPN R03 by the hub code [you can see a small code starting with D0127…, which is one of a few hub codes that RICOHJPN R03 uses].

Most packs of Ricoh discs forgo the spacers, not just under the Maxell brand, so you might be able to find them by that. :iagree: The RICOHJPN R03 will still be made in Taiwan, though. [Warning: you might also get RITEK R05, which is more of less the same thing as RICOHJPN R03. Hub code will be D0125… .]

I recently picked up a 50 pack of Maxell -R 16x from OD and it was Prodisc F02 but to my surprise my new LG GH20NS10 will burn these @8x with the same quality as TYG02.

Hey guys, Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t R03 actually Ok media?? For my important things I only use TY but I picked up a 100pk of Memorex:doh: :bigsmile: R03 a while back & all of it burned well with decent scans. If I had to make a choice on 2nd class media I would definately choose RICOHJPN R03

Although RITEK R05 should be the same, I can’t say that all burners support it equally well as RICOHJPN R03. But then, we could always strategy-swap…:wink:

EDIT: My best CMC MAG M01 recently has come under the Maxell brand. That’s not saying much, but they are another alternative for day-to-day burns.

Never even one disc that has been a keeper. If I couldn’t get anything else, I’d have to resign from the burning business. :a

RICOHJPN R03 under Memorex have been excellent for me as well.

I will be looking for some Maxell for sure.

I’m looking for Maxell Brand RICOHJPN R03 / RITEK F1
but I got CMC.MAG.M01 and Prodisc F02 :a this week

:wink: This morning I was lucky to get Ricohjpn R03 media id in the 100 pack of Maxell’s from Office Depot. If I had gotten Ritek F1 I would have returned them.

Well I will pass as all the Maxell branded Ricoh I’ve had has been garbage!
