Maxell CDR 50-Spindle 48X quality?

Postby btiger on Fri May 27, 2005 7:49 pm

I came across three spindles of Maxell CDR all with the same UPC/made in Taiwan, however the packaging of all three are different:

1) Black base with PN: 017825-01/SH
2) Grey base with PN: 017825-01/RT
3) Grey base with PN: 017825-01/00

How does one tell which is which? I searched DVDHelp but no specific details....or does it matter? This is the first time using Maxell CDR, just want to be sure before opening the spindle.

Thanks.

Take a look at this thread. It is very informative and probably holds the answer to your question. :wink:

I would be willing to bet that the black base spindle you have contains CMC discs and the gray base spindle contains Ritek CD's.
No, I like women.

I've used the Grey ones, Ritek. Excellent in Lite-On and LG drives, suck in Samsung CDRWs..

Thanks TheWizard,Bhairav for the links & feedback.

I finally found a forum where they reviewed Maxell/Ritek's CDRs (some batches were quite good but at times some batches weren't that good!) and decided to return the Maxells and just stay put with my regular/usual Sony CDRs :wink:

Regards.
