Hello to all.
With burn quality my only concern, low prices, and the Optiarc 7200’s popularity, I’m going to try one… but I think I’ll get an older one, for the boot code.
This well-known and recognized 16x media isn’t really that old, and check out the price !
Bargain priced MII Verbatim media, now at Directron:
Verbatim DVD+R, MCC 004, in blue/purple packaging, $8.99/50 pack (6 per case). The 300 disk cases are marked “Made In India”, 95037. Also available are 25 packs, MIT.
Decent burns with these, but nothing to boast about, and that could be my burner. When rec’d, I opened four packs, test burned a few disks from each pack, and the scans were low 90’s with reasonable PIE/PIF (but nothing as low as some may demand). Consistency from cakebox to cakebox was very good. These disks are branded, and the plastic surface has improved writing characteristics, a pleasant surprise.
