Maybe I’m lucky (or stupid), but having read all the stories of failing Ritek BD-R media I decided to give it a try, maybe they took the lesson and improved their products? It’s still quite early to say, because my oldest BR2 media is just 2,5 years old, but I don’t see any dramatic symptoms of degradation yet. I can’t really have the discs clean off dust, as I rub them with a clean cloth I always get some smudges left or small lint coming from somewhere, therefore I believe that increased error rate is somewhat justified. I scanned 3 oldest discs, 2 of them stored in cake box, 1 in jewel case, and all three give similar results. Here is one example, stored in cake box, disc produced in July 2015.

Maxell BD-R printable 1-4x, RITEK-BR2-000, burned with iHBS212 clone@Plextor PX-LB950SA 1.04 @ 4x

Burned and scanned 3rd of May 2017:

Scan 29th of November 2019:

@8x speed:

Have also some newer BR2 from 2017 Intenso branded and Sony BR3, but those I have burned in late 2018, so it’s too early to re-scan at the moment.
