After testing more than 5 discs, I could hardly get the media to play at all on three players. Once, the DVD menu started after waiting a while. Usually, however, the players would just say "loading" forever.

Work flawlessly on my Benq burner at 12x. Ive had nerovision stop during the burn process twice...probably just a software error. No coasters in about 30 completed burns so far, using Nero and DVD Decrypter.

Have yet to use media. Have used MXL:RG02 media in the past, which will burn at 4x on my Lite-On LDW-811S. This media however is limited to 2x on the same drive (latest firmware installed). Extremely disapointing. If anyone can find me a hack to enable 4x burning I would appreciate it.

Kick ass discs- burns @ 12X on my pioneer 109 & 16X on my NEC 3520.-no problems.
These are Maxells "made in japan"!! not Taiwan (Ritek G05)-
When Maxell 1st switched over to 8X's- I bought a whole "crud load" of these when they were on sale for $40/100.
Seems like the more recent stock I have seen in stores are now all made in taiwan.
Be careful to check UPC code- for Taiwan or Japan.
Maxell puts a Taiwan sticker over Japan. BUT, some still show japan & ARE NOT from Japan.
Japan discs are smooth right to the spindle hole-
Taiwan ones are grooved around the spindle hole area-
Disc ID on dvd decrpyter confirms it.

Will not backup digital home videos or pictures, Read disc error or Illegal disc error message every time I tried to backup. Also had trouble with backing up data fines. Out of a spindle of 15.I tried burning at all speeds to no advile I have only had 2 record successfully. I will never buy this type of media again. I'll stick with the cheap staples brand that I have never had a problem with.

I'm getting verification errors on every second disk...
I then used some of the older Maxell 4x media, and no verification errors...
Drive is maintained and cleaned but are the older 2x drives a problem with the 8x media?
