I don´t understand what some manufacturers think. But it´s not only Prodisc, Ritek made similar things. Think of the R04; some writers support it, maybe only at 12x, but some writers do a good job with it. And now they´re switched to P16? And they had more revisions of R03
You know it's funny... I was just about to add a comment at the end of my post about how Ritek was becoming just as bad as Prodisc for multiple media types.... but I figured it was too much of a rant post as it was

That's probably because you don't have to listen to all the complaints about them that I do... It's funny though... no matter how many times a company swears to me they'll never carry Prodisc again because of all the crap they put them through, they always seem to bring them in again
(and of course, it leads to more sob stories to me....

And DVD-R I´ve only seen from Verbatim and Sony
Yes, I have 2 types of Prodisc 16x DVD-R and DVD+R each, which will be included in my DW1640 review. PRODISCR04, PRODISCR05, PRODISCS05 and PRODISCF02.
