Yeah okay results in C't test but on the other hand I also have I think 3 or more other tests were 4x Optodisc +R media scores quite bad.
As for RWs, they're considered to be one of the best as well. Both Maxell and Mitsui use them for RWs
Mitsui isn't in the media business any more ? You mean MAM a companny who fakes codes. So much if the write strategy doesn't match and the error levels go sky high. Yeah that's a good one for claimeing quality.
I agree that Optodisc rewritables are good but I wouldn't say that there one of the best. Unless your best list is really long.
Their DVD-RAM is also top notch, being that they're the only company qualified to manufacture DVD-RAM media for Maxell (who is considered THE number one DVD-RAM manufacturer!!).
Since when is Maxell number one DVD-RAM manufacturer ?? and based on what ? (Maybe Maxells own propaganda ?)
Regarding my experiences with Prodisc.... just because I was personally burned by their low grade CD-Rs with lame ass life spans, not to mention subpar CD-RWs that died after 3 burns on average (sometimes could be stretched to 5 burns...)... that doens't mean I don't keep up with current Prodisc media. I've been completely unimpressed with PRODISCF01 and FUJIFILM03 made by Prodisc, MCC02RG20 and PRODISCS04 were "ok". PRODISCR03 was usually good for me (although I've read about others having problems on it frequently, so I tread carefully with it). PRODISCF02 and PRODISCS05 seem to be limited in support currently. Newer Prodisc 16x DVD+Rs don't seem quite as good as their 8x DVD+Rs unfortunately.
At this moment 16x DVD+R can't be judged fair when compared to 8x DVD+R's because of limited support and harder conditions.
