These are the 4X inkjet Printable white.
Had to redo everything that was done with these.
6 different players would not play last 10 minutes of movie. Tried different burners and different MPEG files. These are terrible and a waste of time and money.

Unreliable: some burn fine, others have bad sectors (mostly freezes). This is disappointing after good experience with several hundred Ritek Ridata G04 4X discs. I returned these to Meritline for a refund.

I've had mixed results testing this media with DVD Info Pro. It had over 1000 read errors on my Laptop dvdrw drive. It's an NEC OEM model. That wasn't entirely designed for Dell. But Ritek in the past has been poorly readable on it. Including the Dynex brand that uses Ritek. It came back as Test failed on the NEC drive (at least two recordings so far using my new dvd recorder for analogue sources. But passed on my Lite On drives. Which oughta figure though since it is a Lite On recorder.. being tested on a dvdrw drive made by Lite On. But this has happened before on stuff written on the NEC. Just because it was written on the NEC doesn't mean it'll read it. But passes just fine on the Lite On. Sounds silly I think. My Insignia branded dvd player likely will play these w/o issue. It normally does for some reason. Has some awesome error correction on it. But my old Pioneer and mom's Pioneer does have trouble with the Ritek. As does a friend. So despite the reputation Ritek has, I don't have great admiration of it.

Bought this media from meritline a week ago based on the user reviews and prior positive experience using +/- 4x Ridata branded media which has become scarce. I have since come to theorize that meritline screens all the negative reviews out of the opinions that they recive and post only what will sell media. This media is garbage, I purchased 200 of the white face media with arita branded around the hub, (DRD-47-4X-ARIW50) they arrived in shrink wrapped packs of 50. I bust open the first pack and went to work. I have had 0 success, I have had disks that failed during lead in, lead out, and various percentages of completion. I had an outdated firmware installed initially (lite-on 851s) and have flashed to GSOP but still no success. I managed to pull off two "completed" burns but that was at 2x and these burns still turned out horribly; skipping, standing still, returning to chapters already viewed, just not worth the time. I took one of the remaining ridata that I had lying around and can still produce a quality burn, so the problem is not with the drive or firmware. I'll have to find some use for the 50 that I have already opened but I suppose I can be happy that I'm not stuck with 100. Meritline offers 60 days on these disks right now - shipping. They'll either be returned or end up on E-bay, so watch out.

Generally very good media - I have had 2 coasters out of 15 Copies done at 8x. This is great performance considering its a 4x disc.

Be aware that burning at higher speeds causes movies to skip when being played on PS2/XBOX towards the end of the disk.
