Have burned 50 of these discs. All with Nero 6 mostly DVD-Video and some DVD-ROM (ISO). All 50 verified with Nero at 4x. All 50 are problem free to my best testing. Clean surfaces with no dirt or crud like other discs.

Don't settle for Maxell made in Taiwan Riteks. These Japanese discs are some of the best media out there and worth the extra cost when you realize a lot of wasted time equals a little money.

Comments posted by Hawseman from United States, March 02, 2004:
Inkjet printable media, with awesome compatibility. I've burned this with both my Pioneer A06 and Liteon 451S drives and they are rock solid.

I refused to rate this media until I purchased it in bulk (part# 635129). I previously bought these in jewel cases, which tend to be the A+ select grade. I wanted to be sure the same quality disk would be in the bulk packaging.

I'm done with trying to find the cheapest media that works well. I've tested (cdspeed, Kprobe) dozens of different brands over the past few months. If you go with these 'bad boys', a lot of your standalone playback problems should go away.

This media always plays in my two finicky standalones. They tend to be sensitive to die issues on the outside of the disk (end of movie).

The inkjet print quality is not quite as vibrant as other media, but it is very exceptable. I have no issues with running colors, long drying times or smudging.

I was willing to pay for media that could burn a full 4.38GB at 4x consistently. I think I've found it with these Maxell 4x printables.

Tried burning 6 discs from 2 different spindles at 4x speed and all have some minor pixelating and brief freezing for a few seconds in the first half of the movie. Normally, bad media gives me problems at the end of the movie. Tried one more at 2x and it seems to work ok so far. It's a waste to have to burn at 2x when the disc is rated at 4x.

Burned without a problem. These disks are labeled on the spindle as Made in Japan. The DVD+R Maxells are Made in Taiwan. My Sony DVD is picky about the -R's that it plays. These seem to be fine. If these are Made in Japan are they on par with TY's???

Works fine in my old JVC XV-S40BK, but would not play well in a newer Onkyo DV-CP701 - skipping, freezing & pixelization. (Onkyo is going back to store).
Reliable 4x burns, not a coaster to date.

Excellent quality and they are as good as Taiyo Yuden made discs, also made in Japan. Ideal for both computer burners and stand-alone recorders.

No complaints about the media itself but the packaging for a 25 pack spindle. I open up my brand new pack and find fingerprints, marks, scratches and the works on them. Why is that?!?!? I've always trusted Maxell and found them to be very good and affordable media. But I'm very disappointed with their packaging. I'm sure their 10> packs are better though. This is not the only spindle that is like this, 6 others are like that.
