Bought in hope of RICOHJPN inside, instead there was this cheapo RITEKF1 thingie. NEC-3520A spits them out: "Media not recognized". Despite my other drive burns them at 8x speed w/o problem, I put the "Poor" burning reliability - it's only 50/50 as my good faithful NEC won't recognize them, and it never had such a glitch with TY and MCC media, or somewhat more inferior media.

Bought a 15-pack from Wal-Mart as an emergency. Would not burn at all with my NEC 2500A, regardless of the firmware. Nero coughs the disc back up even when trying a simulation. I get an "Illegal Disc" error and am told that Disc-at-Once could not be performed.

burned them all except for the last one at the bottom of the cakebox because it was filled with scratches and was completely unusable. other than that, all other discs work fine. when a verbatim dvd-r 16x azu+ began acting up on me and getting verification failed all over the place, i thought my burner was gone. then i put this media in and behold, it verifies fine.i guess reputation isn't all it's cracked up to be. i trust this media with my eyes closed.

burned about 15 of the 25 and had no problems what so ever with any of them, not with burning, not with reading - PC or DVD. It even reads with my cousin's lame dvd-rom that reads basically nothing. burned most at 8x but saw no difference with those i burned at 16x. overall excellent. the only thing that i would nitpick about is how the media looks - orange with green writings? worst design ever :(

Bought for use in my Pioneer DVR-545 HX-S stand alone DVD / HDD recorder.

Burns well every time in my Pioneer DVR-545 HX-S recorder (the machine burns them at 6x according to the manual), I have burned about 20 of them so far in this machine. They play back with no glitches at any time in this machine.

However the same discs play back with on average 2 glitches every hour in my cheap Chinese players, a Techika DVD-104 and a Compacks DVD-S580. The picture will freeze for a few seconds and then keep on playing. Never locks up. When you rewind a little over the exact same section, the error is gone.

When I put the same discs in my Sony / NEC OptiArc AD-5170A with manufacturer original Firmware V1.11, all the files read back in DVD decrypter at top speed (6 to 16 speed) without slowing down except for about 10 seconds about 3/4 the way through when it dropped to 8 speed. Finished with NO read errors. Then ran it through the free tool Nero CD / DVD speed on Disc Quality test at maximum speed. JEEZ the raw error rate for PIE / PIF errors was enormous at 400 to 1600 for the PIE and into the red / pink for PIF IIRC. Not good 'quality' but worked 100 per cent (no hard read errors).

When I then put the same discs into my NEC ND-3540A with manufacturer original Firmware V1.04, all the files read back in DVD decrypter at top speed all the way through the disc. No read errors. Nero disc quality scan says about 20 to 40 PIE / very low PIF errors, nearly always in the green. Slight rise in error rate at the end. High quality rating. So my OptiArc dislikes it a little but my NEC loves it. No read errors though at any time.

However I usually use Ritek G05 8x DVD-R discs instead, they work perfectly in my Pioneer DVR-545 HX-S where they are written at 6x. Playback on this and all my DVD players is flawless every time, and my OptiArc and NEC drives both show a low error rate. So I shall continue to use the Ritek's instead I think.
