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.
