Can anyone here tell me a bit more about Maxell DVD-R and DVD-RW media?
Someone posted this about a week ago:
Very useful for someone like me (who prefers to buy blank media from physical retailers) but notice how there isn’t any Maxell DVD media in that list.
I’m assuming that there are lots of people here who have used Maxell media before and seeing as Maxell DVD-R discs are pretty much available everywhere in my area, I’d like to know what steps I need to take in order to avoid the fake Maxells and how I can identify genuine Maxells. I already realise that genuine Maxell DVD media (the very good quality ones) usually consist of a media code of MAXELL003 or MXLRG03 etc. But the problem is identifying them before I buy them.
I know that Argos sell them, Currys and PC World sell them from time to time too. I’d usually just ignore any Maxells I come across in the shops thinking that they’re fake. So I’d appreciate your tips on how to identify the genuine ones. Pictures would also be appreciated.
