Maxell=Ritek???

Postby jberry on Thu Dec 29, 2005 3:33 pm

You know I have been out of the loop for a while, but I got 100 Maxell from Futureshop for $20, 8X speed. But low and behold they are Ritek...when did Maxell start doing this? Is this old news? Are they junk (I bet they are).

Oh my :-)

Yeah... that's the old stock. Newer Maxell's are made by CMC and sometimes even Maxell in Japan again!

for the best stuff, get the Plus Series Maxell's from NCIX :wink:

Hello!

From waht I have seen, the Ritek and CMC shows better burn-quality (lower PIF) tahn original Maxell 8x.

I was meaning that I get better results with Maxell's own media, then Ritek or CMC.... but that I agree some CMC can be quite awesome!

Here is burn quality at 8x....what do you think....4x burn would likely have yielded better maybe?

Never had these Maxell Riteks before

4x will probably work a little better yeah. Still it seems like it's ok.
