How are Imation 16X printable DVD+R discs?

Postby pranav81 on Fri Dec 19, 2008 2:43 am

Hi there.

Has anyone tried the Imation printable 16X DVD+R's? If so, hows the write quality?

I saw the same at a shop at a very good price, about $16 for a spindle of 50. Sony normal, not the printable one's, cost around $20.

Thans!

Are these those smear/water resistant discs?

No. The pack doesnt mention them to be smear/water resistant.

Imation is most likely MBIL made but even then that can mean a great variaty in codes and in support.
It's not bad media, but some stuff can be quite drive dependant.
Trying to make something "foolproof" only forces nature to make a better fool.

Okay... So what do you say, should I stay away from this media and stick with Sony? I burn regularly with LG burners, one on the laptop and another on the desktop.
