Comments posted by Steve Pearless from Other, July 02, 2003:
Very variable, 1st 100 was near 100
% OK, next 100.... 20%OK, these were replaced with new batch which are bad in last 500-700 Meg. Fill them less than 4.1G and they seem fine.

Conclusion... they are cheap.. but for me the extra cost of a good Ritek disk (like the datawrite white top 4X not had one fail yet!) is well worth it for the lack of frustration. I will not buy anymore!

Have burned about 10 of these so far at 4x speed. Burn was sucessful but I get choppy playback towards the end of the disc (50% - 75% through film), then it stops alltogether. 2x burn seems OK but I've only tried a few at this speed.

many coasters made for playing on the pioneer dv525 however when playing on other dvd's they work. Corruption towards end of the disc however nero does not usually report any errors. problems writing at both x1 and x4. Also discs would not play on ps2.

The first pack burned OK - but ONLY at 2x or LESS.
Nero said it was burning at 4x , but still took half an hour!
The second pack - none burned , errors within 5 seconds of burning!

Pioneer have informed me that that they DO NOT recommend Datawrite Red 4* media and commented that there are inconsistencies between batches & even within the same batch; they did not recommend what media to use.

I can only get this media to burn at 2*
