:slight_smile:
Love my new Teac CD burner but have a few questions for the expert panel her. I've always used the cheapest CDs I could find or whatever is on sale. Would like your opinions on the following:

[SIZE=3][COLOR=firebrick]1. What is a good source to purchase high quality CDRs and CRRWs ? Mail order ?

[SIZE=3][COLOR=darkred]2. I'm looking for 40x CDRs which I haven't found yet, and a good source for 10x or 12x CDRWs.

[SIZE=3][COLOR=darkblue]3. Does the "high quality CDs mean translate into better sound or video or is it an issue of lasting longer and compatibility ?

[SIZE=3][COLOR=blue]4. Based on what you think in question 3, is it worth paying more for "high-quality" CDRs and CDRWs ?

Thanks in advance.

well i have basically THA BEST cd-r’s u can get MITSUI 24x

i HEARD these (24x) cd-r’s have no problems writing at 40x

http://cddimensions.com/cd-r_media/mtc-jl400dlog.asp

they cost about 58-59 dollars out the door after shipping.
i did not order mine from here, the ones i have, i got from ebay
but i think they are tha same thing becuase i recommended these disk’s to someone else on these forums and they where happy and said they worked at 40x :slight_smile:

MITSUI cd-r’s last for over 100+ years :slight_smile:
i mainly only recommend using these disk if u need to write at 40x speeds or need to keep important stuff that u cant afford to lose, otherwise i would just get some of tha cheapest media availible for general use.

Sadly these guys do not ship outside the US, anybody got a supplier in the UK/Europe?

Hi,

Goto svp comms www.121cdr.co.uk and they have unbranded Mitsui SG Ultra II 80min gold’s at £44 for 100 in a spindle (the center hub says Mitsui, there is a barcode and they are Pyth… discs, identified as Mitsui’s in ATIP programs - no problem then :slight_smile:

I had problems with DR’s, TDK’s, etc, but these discs are brush lacquer finish, they write to and read back with no errors at all in my Plextor 241040a. CDSpeed scandisk + media quality tests pass 100% with never a slow-down.

Absolutely lovely cd’s.

Ice’y
