I also swore off Optodisc after nothing but problems with early media, my more recent re-introduction to them was unintentional (media purchased without knowledge of their media code). To my suprise, they burned very well, many of them producing scans that could be mistaken for T02 :eek: (QS's of 98-99, PIF totals under 100-200). I've bought a few more spindles from a couple other brands and most have burned well, although I have definitely experienced alot of fluctuation in quality from batch to batch. Two spindles from one cheap brand were approaching coaster level towards the edge, while another spindle from that same brand burned extremely well. Stability has not been an issue (yet anyway....), although I don't put anything important on them after being burned the first time around. I think they are one manufacturer of media that has very clear 'grades' of media, some of their cheaper branded media is poor but if you ever check the drive tests by CDFreaks they appear to get high quality Optodisc.
Enough wandering off topic for me, I just wanted to input what I've seen with newer Optodisc. I would say I'm more or less neutral on their newer media but I'll always have some doubt in their media after severe issues with early media. Like alot of other brands, they have potential to work very well but also have their problems.
