Ritek DVD+R

Which Ritek? And how to distinguish this when hidden behind a different brand?

F16 seems to be very good, at least if not written above 12x.F1 is also not bad, but have mostly higher PI and not every writer like it.

In germany Ritek DVD-media is hard to find, the only brand with it I found is Quvido or older stocks of Sony Made in Taiwan.

Someone here told me Maxell Made in Vietnam also made by Ritek

Smartbuy also sells Ritek now (instead of Prodisc)

I guess gamble is always possible. There are a lot of discussions here about media-quality and the brand, Made in …, Made by …, and everywhere can be a big vary

We also seen it often with MCC-media

I think I can still find some Maxell and Sony around. DVD recordable media have almost disappeared from retail shops here and what can be found is usually old stock and overpriced. I don’t do many burns these days so I don’t keep a large stock of empty discs (I think now I have around 500), but I wonder if I should stock more.

Here also optical media disappear from retail shops, but eletronic-discounters still have it. But only a few brand and less manufacturers are to get in the eletronic-discounters: Verbatim (mostly MiI), Intenso (UME/AML), own brands and Platinum, Maxell (almost all awful MBI), Philips (CMC mostly) and some odds of Sony MiT.

Other media is even hard to find in Germany´s online shops, only Ebay is still a good source but could be expensive with orders from outside Germany

But it looks like in some countries like USA Ritek is easier to get than here.
