Courtesy of Fatwallet, taken from a Slickdeals post originally. Not sure what the media code on these is. People speculate Optodisc but I can not confirm. I used some Velocity discs back when they were Prodisc-manufactured MCCs but apparantly they’ve changed suppliers since then.

I’m in for a hundred. Curious to see what they turn out to be. If I were sure they were Optodisc, I would have purchased several hundred.


#3

I am in for 100, I can use some -R 16x for testing, would be nice if it is Optodisc


#4

Out of Stock. Good deal and I’ve used Velocity branded discs in the past without problems. Probably just as well for me that I didn’t order any, too many discs already. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

wow, too many risk takers in here. Not such a good deal. The old 8X Velocity were MCC but good luck on the newer ones. But for that price shipped without any rebates involved, I guess you guys can be the guinea pigs for us


#6

I got a hundred. At that price they make good 12 guage practice if nothing else. I guess us that did will let you that didn’t know the results.


#7

I guess with the auto-learn strategy burners these days, might as well get one so my drives can learn them, keeping my drives “well educated”


#8

Do all burners auto-learn these days? I thought that was still something exclusive to old-school BenQ and Lite-On.


#9

Were they genuine MCC or did they just use MCC media codes?


#10

they were genuine MCC code in the past, especially the -R


#11

My guess would be that these are Optodisc, which is decent media. Worth a try for $11 certainly. Regarding write strategies, the only drives I know of that have any kind of ‘self-learning’ are Benqs with SolidBurn (1640/50/55), 5S and newer Liteons, and newer Plextors.
