What do you think of these media?

Is it worth buying them or look something else? The price looks very tempting.

I never had luck with Ritek dual layer media in any burner, alas. I gave up and went to Verbatim, which has been consistently decent to good for me.

For single-layer media, I’ve never been a fan of Maxell but for the price they might be worth a try. I generally prefer Taiyos but I got a spindle of Falcons to try.

Maxell SL 16x DVD+Rs should be fine for daily use, but I would not use them for important backups.
Avoid any Ritek DL media at all costs. They are very inconsistent and unreliable.
These Verbatims are much, much better: http://www.totalblankmedia.com/verbatim-dvdr-85gb-double-layer-printable-8x-25-spindle-p-1626.html
