[QUOTE=SeanW;2224429]MBI discs are a bit of mixed bag - some people like them, but mine, under the Philips brand, were not very reliable.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, what I will say about MBIL is that quality can be variable. Though the MBIL-made Verbies at least have improved a LOT in the last year-18 months.
Since you mention Philips MBIL discs, I have about 100 of them (both - and +R 16x media). The 25 pack of the -R I’ve used so far has been good for my purposes (“everyday use” discs) - playback has been flawless.
