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!

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.

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.

Very inexpensive (15 for $15 USD) but very unrelable media. At first, my Lite-on LDW-411S would not even be able to write this media; it would start to write the lead in, but lock up. I then upgraded the firmware, and it worked, but it would only burn at 1x. Just a couple days ago even newer firmware came out, and now they will burn at 2x. But the same problems occur - some DVD-R's burn better than others in this 15 pack but they're all unreliable regardless. One movie has random skipping/pixelation every now and then, and another just flat out stopped playing at the beginning of a chapter (tried to get past a frame and eventually gave up). Some players handle the discs better than others, but I've seen no perfect playback with these yet. I've played it on the Sony PlayStation2 and XBox game consoles, as well as Samsung, Apex and Toshiba DVD players. PC playback is bad, too.

Stay away from CompUSA (Princo) DVD-R's unless you want to get ripped off. I doubt their DVD+R's are any better. Memorex 4x DVD-R (Prodisc) and +R (Ritek) are excellent. I've played the Memorex DVD-R's on the above mentioned DVD players with no problems whatsoever.

Somehow the combination of Nero 5.5 and my Sony DW-U10 loves Princo products. I even some problems with Ritek G03 or G04, but never with Princo 1X using this combination. All the DVD Standalone that I listed play the Princos or CompUSA/Princo that I burned with that combination. Ritek is good, but I got problem play on the Sampo-611. Never understand why?!!

I had slight skipping problems and picture quality issues when playing it on my Apex 1500 but it played perfectly on my Toshiba SD1800 and two of my laptop DVD players. Just remember, you get what you pay for in terms of media. I didn't get any coasters with COMPUSA media but I'll find subtle problems when playing through the DVD's as mentioned above. Don't be fooled just because the movie backup plays in your DVD player, you have to go through each of the menu items and play it for a few seconds. This is what I did when I came up with these subtle errors. Is it worth the cheap price to do these checks after burning? NO! I'm going to return these to COMPUSA and pay the 15% restocking fee.

Burned 150+ DVD's so far and only 1 coaster... This media is great. I have not had any problems at all. So far I have been burning at 1x but will try 2x soon. Only concern I have is media's reliability over time. Other media companies are advertising 100 year quality for their media so I am not sure about this one.

These work great on my APEX ADV 3800 and Daewoo 5000N. I heard bad things about the Princo-made COMP USA media but so far have had nothing but success with them. They play with no problems and no skipping. I just saw them on Sunday at CompUSA for 19.99 for the 25 pk spindle. I will be picking more up at this price real soon!! Burns at 2x on my Pioneer 105 and at 2x on my GMA 4020B.

I don't understand why everyone has such raved reviews about these discs. I have not had the same luck as the bunch. The discs burn fine on my drive and will even verify fine. But any attempts to play them back after using powerdvd just gives me spurts of video followed by a disc read crc / clean disc error.

The discs do not work in my xbox nor my ps2 either.

However, they do work fine in my friends dvd player (every disc I tried was perfect) but for me it's been no go.

At first I tried to avoid picking up Princo made DVD-R discs. After exchanging Optodisc made DVD-R discs twice at CompUSA, I decided to give Princo made discs a chance, and they worked much better than Optodisc made discs. Not sure how these discs will hold in the long run, but they played quite well right after they were burned and no skipping and pixilation like half of my Optodisc made discs. I may give Princo discs more favorable consideration if the price is right.

Got at CompUSA the other nite for $7.99 per 10 pack (SKU #289893) with instant rebate! Was advertised as manufactured by FMI but DVDDecrypter shows PRINCO as the manufacturer ID. Also, they say 1X on the package but my Pioneer 105 with hacked firmware 1.33 burns at 2X all day long...no coasters. Great media and Great deal...wish I would have got more!
