My experience with genuine ScratchProof DVD-R 8x from with MID code TTH01 is very good
I burned them in a NEC 3500 fw 2.19, a LG 4163 fw A105 and also a Pioneer A07.
In this thread:
You can see 2 DVDinfoPro scans of these TTH01 burned in the same conditions as one MCC-004 and one TTG02. This last TTG02 code is the “traditional blue” looking TDK DVD-R 8x.
The ScratchProof TTH01 from TDK are realy grey
There were or are at least 6 MID codes of TDK ScratchProof and I don’t think that all the dyes are of equal quality.
“Old ones” mostly sold in amaray boxes:
DVD-R 2x: TDK-G02
DVD-R 4x: TTG01
Sold at the moment also sold in jewel boxes:
DVD-R 8x: TTH01
DVD+R 8x TDK-002
DVD+R 16x: TDK-003
There is also a rewritable one:
DVD-RW 2x: MID ?
I choosed to burn the TTH01 MID code of TDK because of the extensive tests published by c’t’ magazine.
You can find a english summary of these tests made by MediumRare here:
The situation in the TTH01 MID code out of the genuine TDK ScrtachProof is
very tricky as there are some blue TDK DVD-R 8x sold in spindles that show the TTH01 code.
They should show TTG02:
