Started burning @8x when upgraded with hacked FW ver 1.16, no multi-tasking while burning, no overburning. Lucky me? Not one single coaster. Didn't K-probed to PI/PO, then again them movies are playing on them settops, so gives a ppffftt. Not pushing me luck for I have since switched to Riddata(purple cover cakes).

Burns great, but the real issue is the playback of DVD movie backups is pixilated and the movie freezes several times throughout the movie. The point of freezing and pixilation does not change if replayed. All burned flawlessly but I beleive the media, and not the RCA player I was using is causing the bad playback.

Absolutely junk. Trust me...don't try these with your
BTC...Emprex DVD burner. You will be sorry! Not one
disk hasn't seen pixel breakdown in the movie or
pauses and freezes here and there. I have three dvd
players...RCA/CyberHome...PS2.

I've updated Firmware and gone backwards...no joy. Have
also tried burning at slower speed. I just waited longer to have another coaster to store for the next party.

Burns flawlessly in by BTC 1004I FW level 49; plays flawlessly on old Toshiba SD1600.

I am bewildered by all the negative experiences - perhaps by some peculiar circumstances this media is well matched for the devices I use.

No coasters in over 70 burns.

If garbage ever looked like DVD-R's, they would look similar to these discs. It would burn fine at 4x, but only when you try to read them do you start noticing how bad these discs are.

Comments posted by dvdflea from United States, February 22, 2004:
Don't buy these! Matrix with LONGTEN code is the worst media!! It will look like it is successful (even Nero verify will work off a Pioneer burner) but you cannot burn movie discs. When you try and play it, it freezes at random times on most DVD set-top players. I have one Aiwa DVD player with major error correction capabilities and I can only play them on there, any other DVD player I play a disc in will skip at random places. If you buy these for movies, you will be sorry.

I bought them from Allmediaoutlet. I don't recommend those guys, they have nasty shipping practices (they don't pad stuff very well)

As an alternative to these crappy discs, get Ritek G04's instead. They work awesome.

Worst friggin' media I've ever used! Bought a 50 pack from www.shop4tech.com in October '03. The first 15 or so were ok on my computer and all set top players. Then I started having problems on the set tops. Movies would skip, freeze, and stop playing, usually toward the last 1/3 of a movie. Finally trashed the last 10 without even using them.

I wrote a good review of the media on shop4tech's web site when I first started using the media, but then submitted a review saying don't buy. Not only did shop4tech NOT post my warning, the SOB's took off my original review. Conclusion: You can't believe ANY REVIEWS ON THEIR WEBSITE. I personally won't be buying anything else from these shysters.

Unbranded silver top/purple-ish bottom side (Longten001's). Order 50 pack @ $32/free ground (NOT advertised as 4x) back when it was on sale, came wrapped in bubble wrap in 2x25 packs. First 25 all burned perfect @ 4x, other 25 had about 1/3 bad burns, and some discs needed to be burned @ 2x. May have been partial bad media, part user/software/etc errors.
1st pack also burned/playback good with 4.35-4.37GB capacity, others dropped back to 4.2-4.3 to be safe
