After testing, it seems that same company when produces premium quality range, produces a good line.
For regular range, i used 3 years old cds without scratch where as for premium i have added note for each brand.
BrandName - Regular Range - Premium Range
Samsung - TooMany Errors (4123) - 0 C2 Errors
[Note - for premium range, i used 3 years old samsung colour discs - red, blue, black, green, yellow all made by prodisc.]
Frontech - TooMany Errors (3885) - 0 C2 Errors
[Note - for premium range i used only 6 month old Frontech Data Vault Discs because before that the brand was not available. These data vault discs have very smooth coating and it seems they have an extra protection layer. they are just like those scratch free cds.]
MoserBaerPro+ - 0 Error - 0 Error
[Note - for regular range i used one 2.5 years old, one 1 year old and one around 1.8 years old moser baer pro+. For Premium range i used moser baer GOLD just launched before 3 months]
Frontech DATA VAULT and MoserBaerPro+GOLD were launched just before a few months so can not comment on them, but moser baer pro+ was more than 2 years old and still gave satisfactory results
Writer: LG - GCE 8320B
Nero CD-DVD Speed 4.10 (latest)
(It seems my drive is capable only of giving C2 error information.)
Whatever, the results were quite satisfactory.
At first I was afraid when i came across this forum, since I read too many negative reports about moserbaer, plasmon and prodisc.
It seems that Moser Baer is capable of producing Very Bad to Very Good media. And that was confirmed when i saw www.moserbaer.com
They offer various kinds of media to be printed. so cheaper are of lesser quality, and the ones they released under their own brand name were one of the Very Good media available.
Now, here MoserBaerPro+, Samsung(regular) and Sony has same or almost same prices (some where MBi is even cheaper than them) where as the test results show that MBiPro+ is superior to both of them.
Samsung Color Media was also excellent but I don’t find them in market now-a-days and most proably they are double the price.
So here I can conclude that for Indian users, moser baer pro+ is the one.
It has good quality-price ratio.(infact we get better quality in less bucks).
This may be their strategy to capture domestic (indian) market, but it works good and benefitial to the users.
I hope this will help all the indian users as well as others. And I will be happy if others too post their experience. Especially regards the brand “Moser Baer Pro+”
I even recommend seeing their site for more info on this protection plus technology (it seems they have an extra coating layer)
Also, I would like other users to share their Frontech DATA VAULT experience with me, since frontech is very popular among the ones who want to but cheap media. But this cheapo seems quite good. (of course I would like to mention that those cd-r were only 6 months old) so only future can tell.
