Okay I just ran out of my garbage slow writing RiTek R03 8x... and I need some 16x media ASAP, but I cannot seem to find a definitive post on what's the MOST reliable brand(s) at the highest speed Vs quality possible? I've been reading negative things about RiTek 16's, the variability of Verbatims, and the complete lack of TY's 16x around. So just WHAT are the top 3 brands from everyone's experiences at 12-16x?
On a side note... just WTF is going on with corps being able to advertise/claim 16x media that doesn't burn reliably, nor get even close to AVERAGING near 16x/~6min burn times? That's like me selling fishing line and throwing all this crap on the boxes saying - :Z
"OMFG WOW UBER 16lb line STRENGTH!!! SUPER 16lb STRONG... Reel in your Monster Catch in ~6MINUTES!!! OOOOH" :disagree:
YET, the avg fisherman sees the fishing line ONLY holding up to about 10-12lbs before it starts to flaw or completely fail! ANd finding that trying to reel in a catch in 6mins, just ends in warped lines and or worse, the fish getting off the hook! In otherwords complete advertising FRAUD.
