I know this question has been done to death with Memorex media and how poor they are, but perhaps this question can have an influence on newbies, like me, who are reading this.
How bad are Memorex, really? I’ve only used a handful of Memorex CD-Rs and DVD-Rs, which probably isin’t good enough to suggest they are decent media… Because I haven’t had enough experience with them!
I understand Memorex have poor inconsistency, but they have always worked for me. I stopped archiving my files to DVD-R a few weeks ago after they became corrupted only two months down the line. (The kicker? Bulkpaq :a ) and invested in a Coarsair memory stick.
But what about if they DO work for you? Memorex in my experience have always done me good, and although I’ve taken heed not to put essential files on them, what about throwaway copies and non-essential documents? (Actually performed much better than my ASDA CD-Rs, and Datawrite Titaniums).
Mny of my CD-Rs are burnt for non-essential music and game iso images, which is no major loss if they go down in a fire / water damage / dogs eaten them. What about then? My oldest CD-R that I burned is a memorex which was done about 5 years ago.
It seems, and I mean no offense to anyone, people dont like media without actually trying them If they work, use them, if they don’t… Don’t use them. And as always, make double copies of your work. Cheers.
