RICOHJPNR02 DVD+R 8X: Any good?

Hi,
Has anybody tried this media on the ND-2500? Are they supported at 4X, 6X or 8X?

Cheers,
Peter

Have you found them for sale somewhere? As I’ve been looking for some to use in my reviews.

Apart from the supported speed I wonder if there will be an increase of write quality.
