The rest is up to you.
This is quoted from dvdrhelp forum:
These are the Memorex DVD+R 4X discs with the purple label on the package. Memorex (like Fuji) uses the same labeling for single discs and 5-Pack boxes. The single discs and 5-packs are top-grade 4X Ricoh discs.
Unfortunately, the 25 spindles are NOT Ricoh's like I had expected but these unpredictable, inferior quality CMC Mag discs. Fuji uses the same marketing trick with their discs and labels: single discs and 5-packs are 4X Taiyo Yudens but 25 spindles are 2X Ritek's. It's the 2nd time that I am misled into buying something other than I thought.
It's really outrageous that manufacturers can so casually screw consumers this way. There should be a law forcing DVD recordable manufacturers/distributors to clearly print the Media ID code of their discs on the packaging.
is this true?
I'm planning on purchasing the memorex at future shop and wonder if anybody can tell if these are cmc discs or richo or taiyo yuden?
Thanks in advance!
They are on sale for $29 CAD at futureshop
