don’t waste your time or money on any double layer media other than Verbatim branded MKM001. my humble opinion of course.

The only test scan I see for PHILIPSCD2 is by raygay:
Not to promising btw.

thanks for the reply. I was kinda curious about quality of course. mabee i should try one out for 6 dollars and test it myself?

I would’nt risk losing money on them.

well for 6 dollars, it may be worth checking out to see if the quality is there. but i wouldnt delete anything off my drive until i knew the burn was gonna last
