Got these from totalblankmedia, hoping to pick up some real 50 Years Archive Life BD-R to replace the disappointing Falcon 4x Plus Pro. Sadly, there's only the Olympics logo on the packaging. A case of false advertising?
It seems the original LM-BRS2MWE10/LM-BRS2MWE25 with 50 Years Logo are fast disappearing. Is Panasonic withdrawing the 50 Years Archive Life claims for these consumer grade media, reserving it for the professional archival grade LM-BRS2MQB25 that cost many times more?
Anyway, Panasonic offers two different consumer product lines :
6x LM-BRS2MWE10/LM-BRS2MWE25 (MEI-RA1-001) for Europe and 4x LM-BRS25LT50 (MEI-T02-001) for Japan. So which is better?
At rated 6x burn speed, the LM-BRS2MWE10 has decent scan quality, but deteriorates at 10x burn speed. High read speed on the Samsung doesn't fare well.
The 4x rated LM-BRS25LT50, on the other hand, offer the best scan quality seen in this forum. 10x burn, Samsung high speed scan, etc, no problem at all. However, the origin of these versatile media remains a mystery. They share the same media code as the JVC, and are not listed in official Panasonic website. Any info?
In short, both the LM-BRS2MWE10 and LM-BRS25LT50 behave well in the Samsung. Does anyone know where to get the original 50 Years LM-BRS2MWE10/LM-BRS2MWE25?
