In all fairness to Princo, these 24x DVD-R's actually can survive a 24x burn.
They are quite the opposite of "easily breakable". You can literally roll them into a tube with the edges of the disc touching without cracking them .
Any unusable burns(none yet) will not be serving as drink coasters. I'm thinking of using them as parabolic reflectors for microphones or telescopes :). At the very least they will make a great cat toy rolled up with a rubber band around them .
The smell upon opening the spindle is truly powerful . Moldy-sweet plastic smell. My wife made me promise to keep the door closed to my office if I'm going to have them out .
