Prodisc Diamond CD-R's

Postby taxman150 on Wed Mar 19, 2003 12:27 am

While I'm a sworn Taiyo Yuden user, a friend said that he is quite happy with Prodisc Diamond cd-r's. I took a look at the media compatability thread to try to find some info about them and noticed that there weren't very many entries for Prodisc. I've also taken a look at past threads/other forums, etc. and the only comments I can find about Prodisc is that they are "one of the best of the cheap brands." I'm curious if anyone has used these cd-r's and can provide any more details.

My friend was going to burn some cd-r's for me that I would like to keep for the long-term. I'm unsure whether its worth it for me to send him some TY discs as opposed to him burning them on the Prodisc Diamonds.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Prodiscs typically average C1 error rates or ave/max 0.5/12 or so. While this is not up to the standard of Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim, it is far from being a bad result. And they tend to be quite consistent in my experience.

As for longevity, I have some 1999 media which I've abused and it's still fine. The only thing I would say about Prodisc is make sure they have a decent protective coating on the label side; unbranded media has a tendancy to be a bit fragile and Prodisc is not immune to this.

Jase,

Thanks very much for the info. It was exactly what I was hoping to hear.
