Hi

I just bought some Maxell DVD-R cd’s (certifie 4x) and I would like to use them for archiving data (such as word documents, …)

Is the DVD of good quality? Is it ok for archiving purposes?
I’m using the NEC 2500A writer.

Thanks
Maxicosy

Do a search for Taiyo Yuden or TYG01. You’ll be pleasantly surprised! :slight_smile:

Also I recommend that you check out the DVD Media Reviews here.

From the media tests I saw on another thread, it seems to me that Maxell (MXL RG02/TYG01) and NEC 2500A are a match made in heaven. Since this NEC drive is quite popular, are others getting similar top quality results with Maxell DVD-Rs?

Pretty much any media that says “Made in Japan” is great. Gotta love the Japanese love of perfection :smiley:
