50-Pack 4.7GB 8X White Thermal Printable DVD-R Media

Media works 50% of the time. Most will result in a power calibration error before the burn starts in Nero.

FAKE TY Disc

These disc fail to burn on Plextor 716 & 708 and BenQ 1620 giving tracking erros. They burn on a BenQ 1640 IF the SolidBurn feature is enabled for known media.

Scan quality of the final burn is poor, large errors but not enough to stop the data being read back.

Later tests of discs (6 months after burn) result in data errors.

DONT STORE IMPORTANT DATA ON THESE DISCS.

Burns at 8x using Nero 7.
Burn quality is horrid and after storage gets worse, quickly.
Don't use for important work as the disc becomes unplayable after a while.

Very very bad discs, they dont really fail at burning but they never really write 8x, they always fall back to lower speeds and the playback in standalone's is bad, some discs work, some dont, this is just crap.
If you burn data its even worse, did that about twice and both didnt work properly.

These disks are forgered, and has nothing to do with Tayo Yuden materials. Worsest disks I ever tried.
Been tried to burn them at 6 drives and none of these burns them. Only pioneer 107 burn two disks. Better disk had 1490 errors in PI/PO test.
If you slightly bend the disk, it may pop open to two disks!
Pure crap, even cheap, but pure crap. Stay away of them.

poor quality writing, failed 4 out of 10 burns, using pioneer dvr-108, very slow burning times, time is equaliant to a 2x burn.
dvd rewriter eventually said NO! and rejected the discs.... for a cheap price... you get cheap quality..literally!!

Burning with my Samsung TS-H552B not even at 2x I could get a good burning... constant freezes along all the movie.

Using my old LG GSA-4040B I've burned 10 at 4x with 100% success...

I guess Sansung Doesn't like Budget :)

Comments posted by mz from Portugal, November 21, 2004:
Though it identifies itself as TYG02 this is NOT Taiyo Yuden Company Limited media AT ALL.

First sign of fake ID is that this media costs 0,35EUR a piece - not likely for TYuden).

Second, TYG02 discs support 8x and are capable of higher speeds (NEC has a writing strategie for TYG02 discs to burn them at 12x). This 'Budget' disc hardly stands for 8x. If recorded at 12x, this media will give an error while reading at approx 2.5GB (where the recorder switches to 12x while write).
The read graphics of my NEC3550, SONY DRU510 and LiteOn XJ-HD165H are pitiful even if this media is recorded at 6x or 8x.

Not all is bad. The disc doesn't look too bad and seems to be ok for video backup - my DVD Player didn't seem to complain.
