It would be nice if you specified the certified write speeds of the discs in question or provided a link.
Look here for info on the actual manufacturer of BenQ discs:
...long URL...click!

The DVD+Rs are Daxon media, which should be pretty good quality.

Attention: There appears to be a bug in the web browser you are currently using. Here are some ways to get around the problem:


To return to the page you were previously on: --click the BACK button on your browser's navigation bar until you reach the desired page.
To checkout --click on the shopping cart icon at the top of the page and proceed through the checkout process using the standard server (instead of the secure server). You can phone or fax the credit card information to us.

Not that it really matters... Check the videohelp link I provided above and do a search on the different types of media that they rebadge.

BenQ Canada is trying to get some friends of mine to bring in a container (roughly 1 million) of their DVDRs, claiming they are all made in Japan.... I sent my friend the link to videohelp's BenQ media section, and they decided it was a bad idea :wink:
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
