Been using these disks in LiteOn LDW-411s for past 6 months without a single coaster. Also seems to work good with Pioneer DVR-411D, no coasters in last month. LiteOn will burn at 4x, Pioneer will burn at 8x (Nero InfoTool says Pioneer should be able to burn at 12x, but I haven't tried it.)

Awesome discs! Bought two 50-pack spindles at Best Buy for $20 each, after rebate. As stated by others, look for "Made In Japan" directly above the bar code. Only 4 spindles were of Japanese origin; ALL others by Maxell, Fujifilm, Memorex, Ricoh, Dataware, HP, etc. were of Taiwanese origin; didn't bother with Sony as I have DVD+RW Sonys which are actually Ricohs.

Reliability just as good as Verbatim MCCs. I've decided to switch to Maxell because of availability and price of Verbatim +Rs. I've gone through a 50 disc spindle of these, none of them died. Now I'm on my 100 disc spindle, and so far so good. I for the 100 disc spindle at Future Shop, which cost ~30 CDN on sales. Awesome deal. I just wish I have gotton more. Make sure these are Made in Japan though, because only these carry the Maxell..002 code, or else you would get RiTek and RICHOJPN media. Highly recommended!

Media write Perfect (70 so far and no coaster yet)at 4x. If i choose 8x the speed is pure at start but in the end is fast (seem's like 6x at start but finally 8x). With firmware upgrade at 3.04 or 3.05 i can write only at 4x (and 8x with real speed 6x) but after 3.06 i can reach 8x

with KS04 firmware, these would not burn at 2 or 4x in my liteon 1693s. those speeds were not even available. 6x burns turned out ok, but all 8x burns failed.
Going to try a few with the new KS09 firmware that's out for my drive.

This is the good stuff. Can be had pretty much all the time from Wal-Mart for around CDN$25 for 50. Take your time and look through the spindles for the Made in Japan ones and you're guaranteed to get these discs as all of Maxell's own media are made in Japan, the made in Taiwan discs will be Ritek's (in either RITEK R03 flavour or RICOHJPN R02 flavour, but both are made by Ritek). Flawless burns on both my NEC and LG 16X drives. One of the few 8X medias that the LG GSA-4163 drive will burn at 12X. Can be burnt at 12X on the NEC 3520 if you use L&D's modified firmware otherwise it only writes at 8X with the standard firmware.

Been using Maxell media because of it's price and availability at Costco, with an old hp external usb cdburner and also with the one in my laptop and decided to give this one a try with my new sony external dvd. This is the only Japan-made DVD medium I found that can be purchased off-the-shelf around my locality. Quite pleased with the result of this combination.

Decided to try this media, do to the fact it was on sale for $8.99 25 pack spindle at Office Depot this week. I noticed it was made in Japan and promptly snatched up all they had in stock...which was only 2 left in my area just after the ad came out! I have burned over half of them without a problem. They tend to score lower than other blank media I have purchased in the past...around 96-97 for quality with Nero CD-DVD Speed. I have not had any problems with playback in any of the players tested. No skipping, audio problems, or pixeliations. I haven't had a coaster yet...keeping fingers crossed! If all goes well I would buy them again. One thing I do like about them is that they have dotted lines to write on.
