Datatrack…80min/700MB…40x…100…36

No experience with them…

Unbranded…80min/700MB…32x…100…35

Could be just about anything, for the price you could be getting some crap.

Discrite…80min/700MB…32x…100…36

The older ones were SKC, which are great, the new ones are some other manufacturer that people haven’t been getting good results with.

Platinum…80min/700MB…40x…50…23

For this price it’s kinda expensive, but I believe that those might be prodiscs, here we get a lot of prodiscs under the name “CD-R Platinum”. Prodiscs are great, but I’m not sure if those really are.

New@…80min/700MB…24x…50…22

Never heard of it.

Nashua…80min/700MB…?..50…23,55

This is CMC, definitely stay away from it, only gave me trouble.

Princo…80min/700MB…?..100…35,60

I use those frequently and have obtained Prodisc-levels of quality with them, those are some of the best discs in the world IMO.

I’d have to recommend the Princo’s. I’ve had almost zero problems with them. If you have a good burner you should get consistently good burns and good compatibility.

Out of the 300 I recently bought (old type SKC 50 spindle), I am having tremendous trouble with them - 2 in 5 are bad in some way - slowdown during scandisk / cdmedia quality check, sometime’s yellow sectors - using my Plextor 241040a. Other media such as Kodak / Mitsui / good TDK are fine, no slowdowns or errors ever. I would stay well clear of DiscRite’s now - gone downhill fast. Ice’y

About a month ago my first spindle of Unbranded cd-roms of the cdfreaks shop was done. I have had about 3 coasters in them and one that mysteriously could not be read by Nero (says it’s not empty)

I’ve just bought two spindles again of the unbranded and now have found just one who also couldn’t be mysteriously read by Nero (the same thing). However for the software that is going to be on it , i don’t expect to use it over and over again for a year or so. Probably two months and it’s already obsolete :slight_smile: So why pay extra ? :slight_smile:

I’ve also bought two INFINITI CD-rw’s from the shop and i must say i’m somewhat dissapointed. After formatting and writing some data on it , it could only be read by the writer and my dvd player , but not on old cd players. But i don’t think i can blame the Infiniti cd-s for it , because i haven’t tested it yet on other cd players.
