Pros: None

Cons: Error....Error....Error....Error

Other Thoughts: ASUS: Model No: BW-12B1ST - Relatively New Drive
Samsung: Model No: SH-S202
HP: Model No: DH-16A6L-CT2 (I think this is a Lite-On Drive)

I sent TDK all the information they asked for except for the specific error codes. Now they are asking for even MORE information. It will go on like this until I give up. Well, I give up. I have posted a nice piece about TDK on my message board and website. I wasn't asking for free media. I offered to send these back to them if they sent me a label to do so. The whole situation is pathetic. DO NOT BUY TDK MEDIA. They are apparently buying sub-standard product now so yo will never know what you are going to get until it is too late.

5 out of 5 eggsTdk dvds are okay

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: Have not had any problems with these dvds some were made in Taiwan and India. I was happy with price. I do not why other reviewers had problems. I used a few hundred and all worked okay!

Cons: I had no problems with these dvds

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: None, as they don't work.

Cons: These disks are worthless. You will waste your time and money with these unless you have one of the very few recorders that will record on trashy media..

I have tried ten disks so far using three different brands of recorders (Samsung, HP, and ASUS). Of those ten disks, only ONE has completed the write process without errors.

Other Thoughts: I am absolutely disgusted with these things. Newegg should be ashamed to sell such trash and should give people their money back when they do. And NO, we should to have to pay to send these worthless things back.

I have used TDK disks in the past without any problems. When I saw these on sale I should have had enough sense to steer clear of them. Newegg wanted to get rid of them so they suckered US into buying them.

It will be the last disks of any kind that I by from this place.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst DVD Blanks I've Ever Used

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: Nice surface for writing with a Sharpie

Cons: Made in India by Moser Baer
Horrible disc scan results

Other Thoughts: Manufacturer ID code: MBIPG101 R05 001

Scored 75s and 76s out of 100 on my Nero tests. The discs still play fine on my DVD player without skips, but those are unusually low scores and indicative of bad, cheap discs. Looks like these discs will only be used for temporary purposes since I can't trust them. I couldn't get a manufacturer name (reads "unknown"). Imation bought TDK, so that might have something to do with it.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor packing - Not as described

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: None

Cons: The TDK DVD 100-pack spindles received were made in India (Black Package, not Blue as shown in the picture). Tested 50 disks with Qscan: ALL FAILED TRACKING ERROR TEST FOR 16X SPEED. Only (1) passed 12x speed test. Only (17) passed 8x speed test. Remainder (31) could not pass the 8x speed test. In past usage (when using the TDK Blue Taiwan DVD packages) most of the disks pass the 12X speed test.

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 TDK 100-pack DVD spindles. Arrived in undersized box that was split open with only two ineffective air-bags for packing. The spindles were separated from their bases, so that the disks were totally unprotected in shipment. Because these are consumables, they cannot be returned if opened. WILL NEVER ORDER DVDs FROM NEWEGG AGAIN!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: No coasters with my LG Blu Ray or Samsung DVD
Great Price on 2-50 packs
Shipped Free

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I got these in lieu of payment for a small computer job. Don't spend a pantload on discs, they are disposable. Make back ups of your back ups. If you are archiving your family memories the format will change....I started with 8mm and still have those movies but I watch them digitally or on DVD now...get the picture?

1 out of 5 eggsThey used to be good.

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48521

Pros: The ones I bought last year were great. Every one of them recorded with no problems.

Cons: I'm lucky to get one out of every five to record completely.

Other Thoughts: I bought a hundred pack of these a year ago. All the ones I recorded did so with no issues. In fact, after repeated failures of this new batch of disks to record properly I used a few of the old ones and again they recorded with no problems. So it's not my hardware that is at fault. I did notice that the die of the old disks is darker than the new ones. The bottom line here is if I had it to do over again I would not buy these blanks.
