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.
