is optodisc 4x dvd+r's any good?

Postby liteonrules on Wed Oct 13, 2004 10:25 am

i just bought 4- 25pack DVD+R Radius tech. total 100 discs for $27.96 at amazon.com $6.99 each 25pack
they are made by optodisc and i was just wondering how good/bad they are.
i wasn't sure if i should put in the good deals section.
NEC 2500A $20 10/04
NEC 3500AG for $47 4/05
NEC 3540 for $35 9/05

Hrm.... well, your burners MIGHT be able to burn them okay.... but most don't. Optodisc's 8x DVD+Rs are better (still not great).

thanks dolphinius_rex, "your the king of all blank media"
i hope 28.00 for 100 pack is worth it.
are they atleast better than PRINCO or as good as 4x CMC?

When I get home I'll check my scans... I should have some tests run from back when I was using the NEC 2500a regularily. It's sitting outside my case now, since I'm out of room :P

Sorry it took so long! I checked my scans for the Optodisc 4x DVD+Rs, and the 2500a with Herrie's 1.07 firmware should burn ok. I only burned one disc mind you, but the error rate was quite reasonable for that burn, according to Plextools on the PX-712a.

Hrm... I wouldn't suggest pushing them to 8x personally... but it's your call :wink:
