Enough plasmon stuff for hands. Disc’s like verbadil. Yeah they even tried of to copy verbatims topstyle or black Q-dac disc’s with plasmon code.
Q-dac seems to have a nose for crap media. No matter what the MID is or who made it. It allways seem to suck.
I probably could fix you some VDSPMSAB 01 and DDDessau V20 if you really want them they scored – in c’t test.
From DDDessau we know that it uses a cyanine dye, which shouldn’t be the most stable stuff that can be found.
Some proof for the people who keep saying that princo is great media.

Also very crappy bonded TYG02/TYG01 will probably also do fine.
And TDK003 Luxembourg and MBIL made are also not the most stable media.
Burn it as fast as possible. Because at 16x the change of faster degradation is higher !
The ricoh MBIL’s are very tricky media.
It seems that they are very drive dependant. Or better said Solid burn can help these perform very well. However the behaviour on other burners is very unpredictable and most times bad.
Incase of RITEKG05. I suggest use the search option of this forum or use google. There should be enough scans of befor and after.
I also suggest that the later batches of G04 are just as crap.
Also G05 test results of C’t should be there in the summary posted at cdrlabs.
Hmm and why did it suprisingly perform --. Hmmm
But then again it looks like Ritek found the way up again. Since so far the 16x stuff performs stable and for the +R also quite good if the drive supports it in some way or the other.
