DVDInfo states:Manufacturer Rated Speed 1.0x 1385KBps

but this was sold as 2x and no option to burn at 1x avail in any burning program. My LiteOn 451 would not burn at all until GSBC firmware, and then will burn with nero but not alcohol ([Write ERROR] LBA: 16, Length: 16 S:KEY - 03/0C/00 - "Write Error").

Got several 10 packs of these with jewel cases for $1.98 in store. Princo media code, no known write speed but I think it is supposed to be 1x media, but burns at 2x (~26 minutes) on a NEC 3520. A large PI burst around the middle towards the end of the disc could be problematic. I had one coaster out of 6 so far.

I know that people hate Princo. I am new at this burning disc thing so hey what do I know. These discs burn flawlessly in my Emerson Ewr10d4. I have not had one coaster yet. Now I guess I just wait 6mo to see if I loose data like most suggest I will. To date, they are great.

PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-106D [CD-ROM drive]
Only burned 3 so far
15 pk (shrink wrap) for $5.99, all burned OK.
Played OK on first try. First full watch of a movie, DVD skipped, I ejected, re-inserted. It gave that bad hard drive crash/clicking noise in my DVD player, tried another, same result. Next day, all 3 played fine. Very odd. Goign to return, not worth the what-if's in the future.

FYI, I have burned +/-, 150+ total, 2X, 2.4X, 4X, Sony, Phillips, Fuji, Memorex, Teon, and TDK.

I think thats enough of a sample. I had 1 coaster. And it was sooooo my fault

All with Nero 6.x since Dec/03

RETURN!

About a 30-35% failure rate
Seemed to get worse the farther down I got in the spindla
maybe because CompUSA limits returns to 14 days
Some completely locked up the recorder

I blamed DVD X Copy until i tried other media (verbatim +r's). Most movies skip/crap out near end. Hard to play in all but PowerDVD and even then, crap out. Avoid these for movie backups.

Comments posted by Nocturnal Nerd from Sweden, March 15, 2004:
Very cheap packaging -- just a shrink wrapped stack of DVD's, also available in 10's and 15's (keep some empty cakeboxes around) plus 25 and 50 in a cake box. The packaging is so cheap that it doesn't even state the speed of the media. Regular price is around $1/disc, but on sale it can be had for about 50 cents apiece.

Burned about 10 DVD's so far, no coaster yet, and had no problem reading them in any of my readers, plus a friend's DVD player that at least a couple of years old.

The color of the media is pinkish silvery purple. ;-)

Ive noticed One problem: Around the edges, I get read-errors. On the few that ive actually tested, one was a dvd movie, and the other was a data dvd, both made with nero. Other then that, theyre fine.
It says these are 1x on the site, but they register as 2x and burn fine.
Oh and a few came with scratches and dings on the recording surface, so stay away from shrink-wrapped ones.

This media is very incompatible with the Lite-On LDW-451S, 3 out of every 4 discs are bad. I haven't had any problems with Fujifilm DVD-R/+RW and Memorex CD-R media, not 1 coaster. I have only made coasters with the CompUSA media. Nero would autoselect 2X burning speed with the CompUSA media.
