Ritek DRD+474-RDCB100 from Newegg w/NEC2500A good?

I was looking on Newegg and these seem to get good reviews. Does newegg consistently get good batches of these, or are they a risk? Would you recommend them?

My burner is a NEC 2500A with the uncapped rip speed hacked firmware 1.06.


In addition to NetTechie’s request I would like to know what DVDs are best recommended for the NEC ND-3500 (either -/+R) and which ones I should avoid like hell.
Thank you

Sorry double post.

I got these couple months ago and they were RicohJPNR01. Worked perfectly @8X for my 2500A(HV2B5)/3500A(IODATA227).
You missed a $10 rebate which ended few days ago I think.

For my 3500A I use Fuji 8X +R Made In Japan(TY T02) which worked perfect so far @ 16X.

Hope it helps.

Has anyone ordered these and gotten bad ones? Are they mailing the same ones as a couple months ago?


A review from yesterday received JPNR01 so there is a GOOD chance you will get it if you order now. Go for it.
Ritek makes RicohJPNR01 if you don’t already know. I have Maxell version of the same disk and get identical quality compared with the Ridata branded stuff.

If you are willing to spend a little more go for the Fuji TY stuff or TY OEM from RIMA/etc…

Disks arrived finally today! Here we are! :slight_smile:

i got 200 of those and only coasters i’ve had were my fault trying out different f/w. They were $32 + $4 shipping with $10 rebate when i got mine. 1 day sale they had on em’.


You guys must do very well in Vegas-

Me personally - I like the warm/fuzzy feeling of knowing that I’m getting the real “A” grade stuff like TY’s from Rima and at a good price-


Dude… you should make rima and Taiyo Yuden pay you a commission for all the business you’re sending their way! You’re blowin’ them up!! :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:
And don’t get it twisted, I’m one of their newest customers thanks to the info you provided. :iagree: :bigsmile:


Thanks for the props-

The reason that I pimp them is because of all the problems given others by folks like Meritline, etc.-

When you find good vendors with great prices like Newegg, Rima, Super Media Store, etc - then you should share it with the world - same way with media - since I was turned on to Taiyo Yuden and Rima by Jesterrace several months ago I have tried to spread the word (I have bought a $hitload of crap media including Princo, Optodisc, Prodisc (8x +R’s SUCK) and Imation) for hundreds of $ that I have given or thrown away - and if I can save even one other person from the same mistakes - then the time that I spend posting will be worth it-

Happy Burnin’


BTW-I have NO financial interest in either Rima or Taiyo Yuden - however if they want to send me some free samples…

My 3500 has scans in the teens for Ritek G05s, Prodisc S03s, and Ritek R03s (burned at 4X). It also has burned Prodisc S04s with scans in the 40s and Ritek +RW W04s in the 30s.

Sorry folks, I’m kind of like a virus, I tend to replicate quite quickly. :wink: :bigsmile:

Yo Jesterrace-

However - a good virus-

You probably get flamed too when you recommend Rima and TY’s-


BTW-you are starting to lag behind in your posts there - I went by you around 250…
