My burns are decent directly after the burn. But it seems that the media gets unreadable towards the end of the disk after storing it for several weeks / months in the protected binder.

Very unreliable burns. And even the ones that do burn have terribly high error rates. Went through 3/4 of a spindle with mixed results. Trashing the rest probably. This is with Plextor PX-716A with firmware 1.06. Firmware 1.07 showed improvement but media has problems after 3.5GB mark. Error rates always goes high around there.

I had used a 25 spindle of the silver faced BeAll 4X before this and had great success. They burned up to 4.6GB with no problems. This spindle of 50 white faced BeAll 4X has been a dissapointment. I've had 3 out of 5 so far having trouble near the outer zone with the disk being only 4GB full.

Once its written though compatibility is good and longevity is good. Just don't fill up the media past 4GB :(

All burns done on a LG-4040B at 4X

TAKE CARE: My burns are very good directly after the burn. But it seems that the media gets unreadable after some days/weeks. If seen this behavior with
the 4x -R types SAMSUNG brand (printable and normals).
I highly recommend to check your disc for readability after some time!

Have now used all 50 from the cakebox, about half were burned all the way to the last sector, all at 4X, NO coasters or problems. Play perfectly on everything but my mom's old, worn out Sony 530D. Would buy more if I could find a good deal!

I've burned several hundred of these discs without any reported issues. I really like the inkjet printable variety that has the printable surface all the way to the spindle. I only burn at 2x as that is the highest speed that the A04 in my Bravo will do, but I wouldn't go above that anyway as I want reliable burns for a item that is being sold.

Comments posted by Earl Thurston from United States, March 09, 2004:
There is a white circular ring at the center of the discs, possibly used to cover up text underneath.

I tried burning about 90% of my 50-pack at 4X write speed. 4 DVD's failed to read on my Daewoo DVD player when recorded at this speed. The other 46 DVD's played on the Daewoo player. So, writing at 4X was inconsistent.
