I boycotted Ritek right off the bat when my first purchase of 50 R03 was utter crap. They'll never see another DIME of MY MONEY! I agree with scarfaceal. If you want disks that are going to burn well, then stand the test of TIME, get TY. Disks that burn great but are junk after a year or so are NO DEAL in my book either, and people have been bitten by that too. (Again, nost recently, Ritek has been a good example of this.) How whould you like to find out after a year, or even after a few MONTHS, that 10's or even 100's of disks you burned are no good? Then you're spending hours and hours trying to recover bad disks to re-copy them on GOOD media. Doesn't sound like any sort of bargain to me!
I use unbranded TY media from www.rima.com for ALL my archives, and have most recently been using Verbatim 16X MCC04 for my working copies or disks I give away. Unlike lots of other people, I have NO REGRETS, other than that 50 pack of Ritek R03 which were the first DVD+R's I ever bought.
