What is your experience with Taiyo Yuden 4.7GB DVD-R 2X Disks?

I’m looking for good quality affordable DVD recordables, and because Taiyo Yuden CD-Rs always did a good job, I ‘am planning on buying 1 or 2 Taiyo Yuden 4.7GB DVD-R 2X spindles (90-180 DVDs). So I was wondering if some of you had tried their DVD-R’s?

What is your experience with Taiyo Yuden 4.7GB DVD-R 2X Disks? And what burner and burning speed did you use?

Pioneer DVR-A03 can only burn them at 1x officially, but this is the only media which I would suggest to use 2x4all firmware for and give it a try.

DVR-A04/A05 can do 2x on them. Unfortunately, C’T left them out with their recent DVD media test.

If I had any possibility to get some, I would definitely try :stuck_out_tongue:

Not myself but Taiyo Yuden 2x DVD-R media have existed on the Japanese and South Korean markets for quite long. I have never seen any negative user feedback on some South Korean forums and they are also reasonably priced compared to the early days of TY CD-R media. :slight_smile:
