Did very badly at 8x (fails testing)
Burns decently at 4x.
On the other hand, a Lite-On 20A1H can burn at 12x with overspeed enabled and get 97 quality score on cd dvd speed.

Bought 400 Value Line TY. They burn slow. 13 coasters out of 40 so far. I have two A109's and burn two at a time. They are wired in series. If one fails I end up with two coasters. These discs are so bad that I am now burning one at a time. They just stop burning randomly! I have never had discs that won't burn two at a time. They are no "value" evan at $.30 delivered. I'm sending 300 back. Even if you are burning movies one at a time and speed is not an issue the failure rate eats up the cost savings.
My previous buy was for the premium TY #DVD-R47wpp100sk8 from Rima.com. They burn two at a time at good speed.
Inkjet printing is light. Never had a printing problem before either. They just don't want to take the ink with light colors. Black prints really light. Even with darkness set on full.
Media keeps getting cheaper - literally. Two years ago media was reliable. Today you take your chances. I saw the same thing in VHS tapes. Thinner platic in the cases and less tape (tinner) on the real over time. You just can't get quality anymore.
Maxell make a DVD-R that is 40 times scratch resistant and 20 times dirt resistant, but you can't print on it.

Comments posted by Brandon Byron from United States, March 21, 2006:
Interestingly, these Taiyo Yuden discs seem to burn better at higher speeds, at least in my experience using an NEC-3520A drive. I tried burning the first couple of discs at 4X and ended up with a little bit of skipping audio/video near the outer edge of the disc. Counterintuitively, the skipping seemed to get a lot worse when I slowed the burning down to 2X for the third disc, so I decided to try 8X before giving up on the media. I've now burnt around ten discs at 8X and have yet to experience any skipping problems at this speed.

This discs are my bread and butter. Purchased several
hundred from SMS, the oldest I've had for over a year
now. If I bought fakes, they're really good imitations.

Rated at 8x, burner willing to try 16x, but I always use
4x.

Great compatibility, no junkers.
I give them 9/10, If in threeyears I can come
back and still say this will upgrade
the rating to 10/10

Ordered from Meritline. Advertised as the 4X media, but they actually shipped the 8X (TYG02) for the same price. They've been flawless! No problems with my burner, nor my home Sony DVD player. 12X burning is the max offered by my burner with these discs, and burning at that speed has given me no problems.
