fry's GQ media varies. this one of "LEADDATA01" gave no probelms. but other fry's 4x GQ media of "must001" is 50% bad at times. other frys GQ media of 8x "mcc02rg20" is good. do not expect EXACT DVD quality with all GQ media.

Media either does not work, or stops working about half way through disk, when burnt at 4X.

So far I have had 100% playback success at 2X with about 15 movies.

I purchased these disks with a Emprex DVDRW 1008IM (FW 0758) at Fry's in DFW. Both of the items have now turned into their "house" drive/disks. Well, I have used the GQ CD-R media with great results so I decided to try the DVD-R media. I have had very bad results burning at 2X and 4X with this media getting about 50% coasters. I traded a couple of disks with a friend and the other brand burned great, and I have not heard back from him. Nero abends after the 100% mark when the disk is probably being closed. The disk reads fine in my console DVD except the last chapter freezes somewhere in the middle. Just my $.02 worth.

I've been using these for months now on my nec 2500a. I have never had a coaster and they work great for data burnt at 4x however for movies I learned real fast to not burn at more than 2.4x or the movie will jump and skip towards the back half. Paid 17 bucks for 25 so very cheap, don't know about the long run, the oldest ones i have are about 3 months and they work fine!

Comments posted by Aram Herschensohn from United States, May 16, 2004:
I stated earlier that the DVDs worked fine when I burned 3500mb of video or less at 2x. Although I initially had no problem, every DVD that I've burned recently has stuttered a little bit. It doesn't get any worse as I near the end of the movie and only happens like three or four times at most. However, I don't know about the long-term and advise people to avoid this media.

The label says it is GQ media and DVDINFOPro says it is mfg.by LEADDATA01 I found that it worked fine and the white printable top goes all the way out to the edge of the media unlike some media that has about 1/16" before the printable surface starts.

All in all for the price $79.00 for 50pk spindle of DVD-R at the local Frys store I'd say it is worth it.
