I had also some HQ4U with this problems but also an Optical Quantum with it. But nobody beats Umedisc Kodak 6x BD-R, almost all with Dye problems

this disc is from a different cake box and has a blue dye instead of a brown dye as the other discs

Who knows which manufacturers use this MID? At least it´s better than the media I had with OTCBDR001

Optical Quantum

Here is an example: https://www.newegg.ca/optical-quantum-6x-25gb-bd-r/p/N82E16817607061

A detailed review by the named called Ted. K:

5 stars rating
Pros: - Cheap

  • No failures
  • Very good price/Quality ratio

Cons: - none

Overall Review: In case you don’t know, these are made by Optodisc who were acquired by Vinpower Digital (Optical Quantum). Optodisc also makes discs for the “Plexdisc” brand. The MID is the same. Plexdisc cost more though. For Optical Quantum, their 4x are made by Phillips. The 6x are made by Optodisc. Quality scans that I’ve searched for on the internet show that Optodisc are better than Phillips. Concerning longevity, I’ve tested discs that I burned in 2012 (5 years ago) and they still play flawlessly. I can rip them with zero “slowdown,” which suggests that the burner is having trouble reading the disc. Opti Drive Control also returns great results.

There is another recent review on here by someone claiming that the discs don’t last. I don’t find that to be the case. It’s probably just his burner. I saw this based on personal experience. One time I had a DVD burner going bad. It would successfully burn, but the laser was going bad so the burns were not very good. About a year after burning, I could only read the dvds on a brand new Liteon drive. My other drives couldn’t read it. This is probably what happened to him. Even Verbatims will produce poor quality burns if the burner is shot.

Because of my personal experience this media would never get a 5 stars rating from me.

It´s the only media I mostly wrote at 2x to get results which are still more worse than CMC-made discs at 6x.

Very mediocre media
