Ridata DVD-R 8X havebeen seeing an increasing number of bad disks. Approximately 6% failure rate. Disks have pock marked dye or some substance dragged back into the dye inner ring. In any case this suggests very poor quality control. I have experienced a similar increase in failed disks with the DVD-RDL 4X same brand & supplier. There just seems to be a general decline in the quality I'm used to seeing.

Consistently good results on two different burners, Pioneer and Emprex. Discs always play on any player I've used. They work at 8X, but I always burn at 4X for more reliability.

According to the meritline site, these are discontinued, and the replacement product has a logo on the hub and is $.40/disc for the 50-pack.

Long term reliability not good for disks burned at 8X.
I am now going through all my DVD's after a year and finding that most of the DVD's will no play on my most sensitive DVD player anymore (Philips 724) and some will not even play on my DVD player that plays anything you put in it, no matter how damaged (Norcent DP300).
I have a lot of older LONGTEN DVD's and RITEKG04 that do not exhibit this problem.
Nearly 80% of my RitekG05's have gone bad, maybe only 10% of the rest of my DVD's.
Watch the reviews, think about it, but be careful. I now only burn at 2X and wait the extra 15-20 minutes.

Media burns about 50% of the time, the other half of the time the Sony RDR-HX510 reports that "the disc is dirty". The most annoying thing is that the Sony always formats the disc regardless, ruining it for any other purpose.

Media burns great at 12x (even though its only 8x media) on Pioneer DVR-108. I have had problems with at most 1/50 discs, some packs I have no problems. I use this media exclusively, and it plays great everywhere I try it. I have used 5 100-disc spindles now, and will continue to use this media.

Comments posted by theGrue from United States, January 12, 2006:
Burned through about 25 printables, seemed to be some pretty variable media. I set my BenQ to 12x, then let SolidBurn and WOPC decide what speed it could really handle. Some discs burned at 12x and came back with quality scores no less than 96% (attached), some at 8x with scores in the 92-97% range, and some went all the way down to 4x, and generally had a large amount of errors at the end of the disc, 40-50% range. But the bottom line, each disc I tested did just fine in my DVD player.

After 150 DVD's burned, I only lost 4 due to a problem on my machine (machine reseting, but worked fine after a reinstall). Burned mostly at 6x, but the discs can be burnt at 4x - 6x and 8x. 8x works fine, no problems. Speed is't an issue for me, which is why I chose 6x everytime. Used Nero 6 Ultra version 6.6.0.16 with no problems. Verification also gave no problems. Works fine in most DVD players (Orion - Panasonic - Sony), but does not work on my Xbox. Used the Lite-On SOHW-1633S with firmware BSOS to burn these discs. These discs were bought at www.frontier-electronics.co.za . For PC use, it's Highly Recommended.

DON'T try to burn this at 8x with an LG GSA4120! I did, and kept getting "No seek complete" errors in Nero whilst it was burning the lead in, and the drive made weird noises...

Even at 4x, these discs wouldn't play in my Panasonic RV32. The first one failed completely (Player said "No Disc") and the 2nd was choppy, especially towards the end... With my LiteOn DVD-ROM, the disc played, but was still choppy in some parts.

I heard that Ritek were great, but that must have just been the G04's, now I regret wasting my money on these. No matter what anyone else says, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON G05'S!!!!!!!

I burned this disc using DVD Decrypter. it burned OK at the end. Popped this into my Samsung DVD Player. Showed choppiness and in-out sound numerous times, unwatchable mostly near the end. I would not buy this media ever again.. the G05 line of media anyways.

The media is reliable, it all depends i guess on the batch you get, but then again i own two burners the LG GSA 4120B and PLEXTOR PX-708A both burn successfull. Played back in both dvd players and played flawlessly, even at 8x speed. I have alot of friends with different brand name dvd players and it only seems that the apex and jvc's playback at whatever speed the media is burnt. I have an Epson R300 and the print quality is wicked no complaints. I was using the prodiscs before until i realized half way through, lol that the media was bad and didn't have the prodisc media code. back to topic on hand I will definetly by these disks again. Again it depends on people computer setups alot of times, plus u can't be multitasking when you burn. LOL only if Tayio Yuden discs could drop in price. LOL

These discs are full of an unacceptable number of PI / PO errors when burned at any speed using my Pioneer 108 drive flashed to a Piodata DVR-108 DX. Burned DVDs will play but are full of static and popping noise. Very disappointing. I don't trust them for backing up important data.

If you think these discs are working fine for you then it would be a good idea to run the free program, Nero CD-DVD Speed and run the Disc Quality Test to make sure.

One look at the graphs explained to me why video playback was so poor.

Not acceptable at 4X or 8X and I won't waste my time burning slower than that.

Have burned @8x ten or so discs from a spindle of 50 so far. Have done CD-DVD speed PIE/PIF scans (@8x) on pretty much all discs so far and all have returned results in the 94-97 grade range. The PIE scans spike at the end of the disc but are still well within the standards.

Media plays back flawlessly in the same drive used for burning. The few discs I've used in my standalone Sony DAV-S300 have all played back flawlessly as well.

This media is POOR for my Lite-On writer. I have used it on an NEC 2500 and had a good burn with it. If you have an NEC burner thes are okay discs, burn at slower 2x for movies since you can get a lot of errors torwards the end of the disc if you don't. Stay away from theses discs if you need speed and quality.

Discs recgonize in my 1.6 xbox right away (Thompson drive)

Without a doubt the fastest media to burn I have experienced. Granted you use the internal ide as compared to using the listed burner in an external Firewire or USB 2.0 enclosure and set the burning software to "fastest speed". DVD InfoPro showed speeds starting at 6x and incrementally increased to 12x during burns!!

This burns only at 4x I think that LG is deliberatly not supporting Ritek g5's at 8x speed. they prefer to support more expensive media. Tried all firmware available from A204 206 207 208 also, and no 8x support.

I was the one who had posted the image of the cakebox and posted it not working on a Sony 510a.

I bought an NEC 3500a, and all is fine. When set to 8x burn in DVD Decryptor, the burn starts out at 4x and moves to 8x after its half way through the disc. Burn time is around 10 minutes for a full DVD.

Horrible discs, bought them because G04's were the best, but extremely disappointed in the quality, even using my NEC and Plextor drives. I heard they changed the dye formula on the G05's (no longer see the deep purple dye coloring), now that I got about 2 coaster out of almost every 5, I can see why!!!

Stay away from the G05's, and stick with the 4X G04's, until Ritek makeup for this major mistake!

Terrible service too, from where I bought them, will not buy from them again!

I've been using Ridata and Ritek 4x DVD-Rs with my Sony 510a burner for over a year now. Bought these at newegg.com (Ridata 8x DVD-R cakebox 100) as I'm preparing to buy a newer faster DVD burner. Tried four different burns at "MAX", "4x", and "2x" and NONE worked. They start for a few seconds and it comes back with I/O error in DVD Decryptor and Nero 6. Latest firmware 1.1a. Guess I'm going to upgrade a little sooner than I thought?

Good burns and scans at 4x and 6x. Falls apart at 8x on 2510 with NEC 2.16. Expect it is a firmware issue and not the media. NEC is slow to support Ritek for some reason. It is worth the price. I will buy it again. Even if they smell like pancake syrup.

General Purpose DVDR Disc, $0.56
Each, Free Ground Shipping

burns fine on my 2 Sony 8x burner Sony DW-D18A and DW-U18A.
however, they don't playback on my Sony DreamSystem DVD player as well as my KLH(Apex) 1220 DVD player. They play back only on the PC's DVD burner.

I tried to burn the same backup movie in 4x speeds, and my KLH(Apex) 1220 DVD player is capable of playing this back. But my Sony still doesn't.

After using the 4x Ridata discs for months i've decided to upgrade to the 8x discs. These are terrible if you have a Plextor PX-712A. 75% of the time it will not burn the disc or freeze up. I have the latest firmware for the drive. On the Pioneer DVR-a07 they do burn a little better.

Burns fine at 8x with Lite-On SOHW-812S.

All DVD backups burned at 8x and 4x play perfectly on an Apex-1110W DVD player.

On a Digix DV-288 DVD Player, DVD backups would skip badly and would not play past the first 1/3 of any movie burned at 8x with DVD X Copy Platinum, DVD Shrink 3.1, and Nero 6.3.0.3. Backups burned at 4x would play through the whole movie, but would still skip badly.
