Here is the link to the DVD-R. Not sure who makes them. They are $39.99 now so not really the $59.99 regular price listed in the ad.

I think CompUSA media tends to be Princo. Strangely, it seems to have quite the following, I wonder if they manage to get "good" Princo...

I picked up a pack of +R and -R today.

+R is INOFOME R20 burns @ 2.4X
-R is PRINCO burns @ 2.4X and 4X

So far I've burned two -R disc's one at 2X and one at 4X, they both horribly failed. So far STAY AWAY FROM THIS JUNK.

Someone on one of the hot deals sites says the +R HE got burn at 8X on NEC ND-3500A.
This happens to be the burner I just bought - I wasn't looking for 3500A posts, just posts about the quality of the discs and that was the first one that I found.

Looks like the +R is really good stuff. I'm going to run back to the store now to return the -R Junk, and hopefully exchange it for the good stuff.

My mistake the +R is INFOME (NOT INOFOME) R20.


And I just found that it is supported at 8X here:

Guess I would need the rip lock firmware.

Also just found out that the write descriptor may be locking this disc to write only at 2.4x :cry: but the write quality is still awesome.
