Prodisc DVD-R

Was always a Prodisc-Fan :slight_smile:

Even my B-grade Datawrite showed good quality, so Fuji-labeled Prodisc-media.

Still impressive which old MIDs are supported by actual Pioneer BD-writers

With Prodisc I only have good experiences, too.
Fuji 4x DVD-Rs with Prodisc S03 can be incredibly good, there are some scans of them in this thread.

Not sure about this, but my old ProdiscS03 would be awesome without the PI-clusters; but almost all this media have it

These discs are a bit scratched in the middle of the recording area sometimes. And have more scratches on the edge.
The disc burned with the BenQ had a lot of scratches, so I didn’t write more than 3800MB on it.
Maybe it’s because there were only 40 discs left on the 50 pieces cake. The discs had a lot of space during the shipment and scratched each other.

Sounds like the Tuffdiscs :wink:

My Datawrite also had clusters, but Datawrite is more known as B-Grade-Brand. But these old discs works very well after 13 years

Yeah ok.
I don’t know, is Yakumo a premium brand?

Don´t think so, I know Yakumo mostly for cheap computer equipment.

Not bad for the very first DVDRs made by Prodisc.
