By utilizing a highly-sensitive organic digital dye, Datawrite Grey 8x DVD-R discs achieve a high level of performance, durability, and long archival life.

I’m looking to replace the Ritek with something more consistent (although the majority of the time I get good burns, especially with the NEC, there is an odd coaster here and there - one really bad batch 2 months ago).
Has anyone tried this new dye yet? I have a Lite-On 411S@811S (Thanks Zebra) and also a NEC 2500A fw 1.07b4 (fabulous Herrie mod) and am currently using Ritek -R G04 x4 and G05 x8.
I’ve read somwhere in the forums that Ritek have “downgraded” the G04 dye to prevent x8 burning - thus forcing us poor punters to buy the new x8 speed disks. Could this new disk be the cheap -R to finally topple Ritek?
Any thoughts on this fellow burners?
