I've had spindles were 1 disc will fail miserably (burn process failed) and the next disc in the same spindle is a perfect burn (OPTODISCOR8).

So that Prodisc 8x DVD+R would get full approval (Not the provisional approval. Which says something like this product has batches that could work on some burners and with even some parameters inside the standard.)
is a really big step.
Also if Optodisc can get Pioneer approval so can Prodisc. (Note Optodisc 8x DVD+R isn't approved by Philips even not provisional approved.)
In general Prodisc seems to have a bit better support as Optodisc and is more playable.Also less really bad stuff falls trough.(visible defects )
However when it comes to longlivety it seems that prodisc still has some work to do. Optodisc scores a better on this.
Still both have there issues and that's why non of them get a recommendation from me.
Pioneer Certification is not sold.

i think those were the ones that were only 4x
Also I really laughed when they said DVD+R 16x certified by Pioneer.

I thought Fujifilm03 was manufactured by Prodisc. Someone tell me now, that Fujifilm03 is produced for Prodisc from Ritek.
Could that be, that Ritek produce media for a big competitor?
