Ricoh DVD+RW Sucks

What was that?

Ricoh DVD+RW Sucks

Postby Alektron on Fri Jun 09, 2006 6:45 pm

One of the DVD burners that I bought (ie. Liteon 411WS) came with a Ricoh DVD+RW. This disc now has visible spots on the write layer. It won't read anymore. Stay away from this brand!


Disc = [DVD+RW:RICOHJPN-W11-001]

Not quite, but the vast, vast majority of Ricoh media is made in Ritek factories. Of course, Ricoh coded media uses Ricoh technology (dye, etc) and probably Ricoh stampers, too. It's really impossible to guarantee quality because at the end of the day it's Ritek doing the manufacturing.
