1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: Shaped like a disc

Cons: Excellent coaster material

Other Thoughts: Never had so many problems with write errors, outright write lead-in failures, and overall crappiness. Wish I could return them. I think I'm averaging a 10% SUCCESS between numerous drives by numerous manufacturers.

1 out of 5 eggsDisk Writes Failed

Pros: Sony is suppoused to be a reliable name. Bought these at a good sale prices

Cons: After burning about 10 discs - 5 have failed. This is a horrible write/fail rate. Good thing is they are discontinued. Now I worried about buying future sony dvds.

2 out of 5 eggsSeveral defective disks "Coasters"

Pros: Some good

Cons: Some bad

Other Thoughts: Buy a different brand. Fail rate ruins value. I'd say about 30% fail to complete burn.

5 out of 5 eggsUsed half a spindle so far

Pros: My first review didn't post on the correct item page. A review for an Asus drive ended up here for some reason. I saw this on the email deal list and since I got them before, I know that $15 for 25 of these is a good deal. I recently started backing up some of my Xbox 360 games. These discs do the job. I have also backed up a few games that I downloaded off of Steam and Ubisoft which also worked great. I haven't burned any actual DVD movies, but as far as data and 360 games, these do the job at a high success rate (100% so far). I have been using Astroburn Lite which is bundled with Daemon Tools Lite and is freeware. I have also used ImgBurn to burn the 360 backups, also free. And to burn zip files, I use the burning software built-in to the Windows 7 file manager. All 3 methods with the Sony discs have worked great.

Cons: None. Don't be scared off by the cheap price. The price is the only thing cheap about them. These are very good quality.

Other Thoughts: If you don't want to spend over $1 per disc on Verbatims, this is a good alternative.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid so far anyway...

Pros: Works as they should, have more space than dvd-5's. Inexpensive.

Cons: Well, with all of the bad reviews, I half-expected for them to fail over and over. BUT.... I have went through eleven of them and not one coaster.!?! I'm nmot sure if it's due to the software that I use combined with my Asus 23 dollar dvd burner or what. Maybe they don't like others' setuips and software but with Nero 10 media edition and my Asus they're perfect!!!

Other Thoughts: as stated, perfect! my kid's are excited as they now have Alice in Wonderland blu-ray rip on disc to watch more than one at a time after buying the download!! I wish it didn't cost so much for each downloaded movie tho but it's worth it to know they're happy...

1 out of 5 eggsSony 8.5GB DVD+R DL

Pros: Fast shipping. Newegg.com really is a great place and has great prices.

Cons: These discs are absolute garbage. 3 straight discs are coasters. The packaging says 2.4x to 8x. They are not 2.4x compatible. I have an iHAS 624 B series burner. I have used multiple brands of DL discs and have not had a problem. These discs error on every burn due to media issues. DO NOT GET THESE DISCS.

Other Thoughts: I was reading the reviews posted here. I went ahead and ordered these discs as many of the reviews saying these were indeed bad discs were for other products (memorex, asus, etc.). Against my better judgement I ordered these anyway because a lot of people are verbatim disc fanboys (and apparently with good reason). DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE DISCS.

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD Disk get BAD reputations

Pros: Dual layer sony brand DL DVD's for $15 and it's a 25 pack. First disk went though flawless as I expect the others to do the same. These will be great for making 1 to 1 ratio dvd backups. I dont like to take my orginal dvd's on road trips. So, I back them up and put them on these. I can deal with having a .60 cent copy get scratched or damaged or lost vs a $10+ dollar orginal copy.

Cons: I HATE when people that think they have a high Tech Knowledge and give a good product a bad review. I've been working with computers since I was 6 years old and i'm 29. I've repaced everything in a computer that can be replaced. I've had hundreds of software programs. Some good some bad, same goes for computer components. It amazes me how dumb people are. Know your products, do research, find good quality software and hardware and you be suprised how things work sooooo much better. A computer is only as good as the user lets it be.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible disks

Pros: None

Cons: Don't buy these disks. Only about 1 in 2 will actually burn no matter what the settings. I have used probably 10 different brands of DVD+DL and these are by far the worst I have ever used. I have 3 more packs I am stuck with. They are horrible.

Other Thoughts: Sony has such a good name but even no name disks are better than these
