I would consider this Risky media. Not because of the media itself but because of quality control. The media label layer clearly had not dried yet or whatever they do to label it because every side had a carbon copy backwards of the label on the playing side. :( So far except for a single disc with wasn't sealed properly thus except for the inner and outer rings, the media was split. If it were not for that label issue, I haven't had any issues I just wouldn't record anything important on them. There are several at the bottom that are scratched (bottom of the stack. Again I think this is risky media. So so far burning is good. I can't say mixed, but risky. I can't say mixed because everything has burned without errors using DVDInfoPro.

A friend gave me some of these, and now I know why. Ten disks failed, then I gave up. Nero couldn't complete one burn. I had no problems with other media with the Nero/Plextor combination. Wouldn't work with my Dell laptop either. Terrible.

Junk, and I don't assign that tag readily. Will only burn at 4X, despite Nero giving it a write speed under test of almost 11X. Then, it burns coasters. I haven't had one burn that played. All stop at some point. Burner and player is built-in NEC in my laptop. Never a problem with BenQ/Sony. Burner used is not what I was forced to select on this forum.

Great Media! I picked up some off of Staples.com (3 cake boxes) and I did not have 1 single coaster! Wish I would have picked up more at the sale price ($5/50). Will buy again given the chance!

I used this media with Nero 7 to copy a DVD home movie on a Sony dru-540A and a brand new NEC.
It did not work on either. I now have a lot of coasters ;(
I can't even get my pc to copy it back to my HD!

Bought a couple spindles at Staples on clearance, the store was already cleaned out of the +R so I took my chances with -R. Surprisingly this media burns fairly well in my BenQ 1655.

Bought a pack of 50 at Staples. Burned 25 all ok. They were all recognized as 8x media by decrypter, nero and IMG (unlike the Playo +R format which I also bought which were only recognized as 4x) 8x but recognized only as 4x by Nero 6 and DVD Decrypter. Plays without problems in my Cyberhome CHDVD300 and my SONY DVPNS-715P.

Bought a pack of 50 at Staples for $4.95 this weekend. Burned about six so far. They're advertised to be 8x but recognized only as 4x by Nero 6 and DVD Decrypter. Plays without problems in my Apex players, my Mintek portable, and my Pioneer DVD recorder. Despite this, I will probably use these for MP3s and test DVDs and will use TY, Maxell, MCC media for permanent storage. JAW

Purchased from Staple's, $4.99 for 50-pack.

Have burned 12 discs (all at 8X) so far, all backed up DVD movies, the average results from four of these discs showed an average of 11 PIEs, 1.x PIFs. Very good results. All played back on a variety of standalone DVD players without a hitch.

As far as I'm concerned, at the insane price of 10-cents/disc and very decent results, how can one go wrong? Surprisingly pleased, so far. Will see how they test out in 6 months.

Plays without skips on DVD Player, however HORRIBLE PI/PO Error Scans. Reading @ 1x on DVDInfoPro, the PI Avg was 400 (Reasonable upper Limit < 280) and PO Avg was 242 (should be less than 32). The PI Max was 1325 and PO Max was 1061!! This was burnt using only 4x using a reliable Pioneer burner.
