Nothing but coasters on 5 different burners! All these burners are scoring 95% or better with TDK media right now! Six consecutive zero quality ratings on Nero CDSpeed!!
By far the worst media I ever purchased. Previous spindle consistently recorded 50% or lower quality ratings, but at least most of these would play.

This media is sh*t, of the 15 discs I've tried to burn so far, 14 of them have had burn errors and had to be trashed. I've usually had good luck with Maxell, although this may be the last time I buy it.

Apparently, the Sony DVD-writer can recognize a 4x and 8x write speed. However, it does not achieve true 8x writing speed when 8x is used.

DVD Decrypter v3.5.1.0. Tried a burn sample on my friend's Sony burner and it burned at 6-7x. However, when we tested the DVD-rip on his Panasonic, the video was very choppy and did not navigate through the DVD that well.
Does not work on Panasonic DVD-C220

Attempted to create DVD-rips and simple data discs to no avail. None of them worked nor passed any data integrity checks. Avoid any CMC Magnetics marked brands for this writer.

Probably the worst Maxell branded discs I have ever bought! Even with the latest firmware the drive will not burn these faster than 4X without causing I/O sensing and other errors. 2 of 4 discs ruined because the speed was 1/2 of the rated maximum speed is a new low for Maxell. Avoid at all costs...

Burns and verifies fine at 4x speed coz I have an old burner. Bought at Future Shop for $24.55 after they price matched & gave a 10% discount on top (Walmart was selling what I assume to be Maxell's older stock of media).

The last spindle of Maxell DVD+Rs I bought (4 months ago) were Ritek and I was hoping the 16x would be Ritek as well, but alas no. :-( The company is inconsistant with which factory the media is from depending on packaging.
