Having burned about 200 pieces in about 6 months I was first positive about these dics. They still burn 100% but after some months I noticed several had `oil marks` on them. From several other the labelling is showing bubbles and comes off.

Also some dics show poor playback )film stops and sound and picture are then out of sync. Some other can no longer be copied using DVD Shrink 3.0 and 3.1.

From now on I will use other dics.

I wrongly entered this as RICOHJPN01 - sorry. I've had very good luck with previous batches of Arita's, but this batch have given me 6 coasters out of 7 burned so far. They typically stop just after 40% into the burn with a WriteDVED 9 error. All my other types of blank work just as before, so my configuration hasn't changed. I won't be getting these again!

Comments posted by Phillip Dampier from United States, April 04, 2004:
Part of the Newegg special in February. Media has good integrity, but ran into a "bad vein" of four 'coasters' in a row - likely a manufacturing quality control problem.

Newegg reportedly will not be selling Arita media any longer due to customer complaints about "bad veins" of media typically found in the middle of the pack.

No spindle - package contains plastic protector on top and bottom, brittle cellophane wrap has a tendency to come off during shipping if slightly torn, leading to discs breaking loose in shipping container.

Authoring/Burning comments:
Discs perform very poorly when permitted to burn at "maximum acceptable rate" using Nero 6. Nero will want to burn them at up to 8x which almost always led to pixel problems by the halfway point into DVD video. Problems increase as program material progresses, eventually leading to audio out-of-sync and picture freezing.

For best results with this media and burner, limit burn rate to 2.4x. When this is done, video has rendered perfectly with no coasters or problems.
Works fine on Panasonic DVD-XP50




 
Comments posted by quaxk from Canada, March 31, 2004:
I bough 3 spindles of 100 in a 3 months span from blankmedia.ca

The first one was faultless.
The second spindle was ok, but suddenly the mediacode was not returned prior burning. This was verified on 3 different burners.
Finally, all disks of the third spindle had strange specks on them as well as an absent mediacode prior burning. It produced my first 3 real DVD media coasters (not attributable to user error) and I've only burned 24 of the spindle.

I'm afraid even DVD+R Ritek's are affected by the current wave of bad quality control and are not to be blindly trusted anymore.
