Bought a 100 spool and all burned perfect and played perfect right after the burns. Several months went but and tried one of the original burns and got the old "no Disk Found" error. Tried it all other DVD players and got the same result. In checking all 100 burns, all that had worked fine iniitially were now all bad. Media was stored in Jewell boxes in media rack (proper stroage). No labels applied (just permanent marker used). Have burned over 600 of the Verbatim Datalife 8X at 8X and all working perfectly. BeAll media will not be purchased by me again!

I burned 30 discs into my 50 pack from Meritline. I decided to actually watch one of my burned movies and realized that every disc will pixelate and skip towards the last 15 minutes or so of the video. It does this on evey DVD player I've tried. I never had this problem with the older Beall media which I used exclusively. These newer ones that I just purchased in January 2004 look different. The center ring of the disc used to be clear but now the reflective surface extends all the way to the center. They burn fine but are useless if you can't even watch them. 100% failure rate with the new version!!

It says samsumg on white layer top for me (bougth in Chile), and the guy at the store said they were 2x, but with my pioneer 106D with firmware 1.07 i can only get it to burn at 1x. Except for that, the media is very good... no coasters and plays perfect on my desktop dvd player (recco brand).

Inconsistant media. Burned one spindle of 50 and none of them worked in a PS2. Opened a new spindle and now they seem to be working fine. Other than the consistancy problems the media is great. Burns at 2x in my sony dru-500a (2.0)

Excellent, inexpensive media. All burns have been successful; no coasters. I only burn at 1x, though (just my preference to quality/integrity over speed.) Works on all my players.

Burned @ 1x, 2x; using Nero; using B's Recorder Gold 5; using TMPGenc DVD Author; using DVD-Lab v 1.2: Did not play on any set-top players: Apex AD1100W (1MB); Pioneer DV-343 (which plays ANYTHING); Panasonic DMR-E20; OR JVC XV-523GD, Did not play on Notebook or Desktop computers. I did notice the dye at the center of the disc was approx. 2 mm wider than other brands that I've burned. The few and proud who actually got this media to play stated "If this media doesn't play for you, then you're burning it wrong". I blew 14 discs then sought a replacement: Riteks, Optodiscs, Maxells - you name it, I've burned it and it plays. This is the only media I've used that was consistently bad. I expect to find an occasional bad disc, but not ALL of them.

I have gone throgh several different media and I have been very impressed with the BeAll's. Most notably, they have an incredible quick seek time. Going from chapter to chapter seems quicker and more precise compared to some of the other media I have used. It seems to have good compatibility also and plays on the PS2. As of today, Meritline.com is selling BeAll's under the Meritline brand name (general DVD-R 1x) so I got 100 for $101.
