well, ive been a loyal ritek user for the past few years, and NEVER had one coaster, they truly make amazing media, but i need some media tonight.
how does verbatim compare?
verbatim>ritekverbatim is more consistent, one of the best media. (that i've used)
Verbatim definitely outranks Ritek on all fronts. I for one will not touch a Ritek disc anymore, especially now that Ricoh is no longer producing their +R discs.
You've got that backwards. Ricoh from Taiwan was always made by Ritek.
But I agree that Ritek is not first choice for reliable quality.
Ritek is good if you burn for your classmatesVerbatim is for yourself to keepAs simple as that
Yeah sorry I should've clarified that. Ricoh was made by Ritek but it was under very strict quality control by Ricoh (at least as I understand it).
The GOOD - old Ritek G05's were very good and gave consistant good burns - but also never were in the league with any Verbatims IMO-
Today - I would not buy any Ritek product - until it proves that they have gotten back to their old (quality disc) ways-
Proves out the old addage that "You Get What You Pay For" (especially in these days of low priced medias)-
