5 out of 5 eggsWhat's the fuss?

Pros: I don't know what all the problem is with these discs. In the year that I have had my LG BluRay drive, I have burned about 70 of these Memorex 6x discs and at least 120 of the 4x discs and have had a total of - count 'em - one (1) coaster from a 6x and zero from the 4x. I do take the precaution of burning at slower speeds than the drive wants to, and I also verify the data, but other than that, no special precautions and the firmware has never been updated, either.

Cons: None, although I wouldn't mind if they were cheaper, but for over 20 gigs of storage per disc, I'm not going to complain.

Other Thoughts: Just like some guns only like certain ammo, maybe your drives prefer certain brands of discs. I can only report the experience I've had, and I have no reason to stretch the truth. Believe me, if they didn't work for me, I'd tell you that, too. But, as with all things in life, YMMV.

1 out of 5 eggsBad BD-R

Pros: Looks Good and Thick

Cons: Have had several bad BD's and I am only have way through them. Never had issues with any other BD and have used several brands. Will never buy Memorex again. Not worth the time and money.

5 out of 5 eggsJust my good luck?

Pros: Never a coaster. Affordable.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Memorex BD-R for a couple of years and burned over 100 discs and not one was a coaster. Not one!

I bought a spindle of regular Verbatims (not the LTH type) and 20% were flawed. They passed verification but has pauses and jumps in the same places during playback on all three of my standalone blu-ray players. Let this be a warning to you all that burn verification is no guarantee of a successful burn.

What's interesting is that both the Memorex and Verbatim BD-R's I purchased were identified as Ridata.

I always use ImgBurn, I burn at 4X even though the discs are rated higher. No other programs are running. I even disconnect the network cable and disable the antivirus program. Overcautious? So what?

1 out of 5 eggsWhy oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?

Pros: Newegg surprised me with the expedient shipping time.

Cons: I should have just listened to you all. Like so many others, I thought "Nah, they just don't know what they're talking about." So, I foolishly bought these discs, even after reading all of your warnings and cautions about them. Yet, I too fell victim to these bad discs. I have even updated the firmware on my drive to the latest version and ensured that my exact burner model was listed on the Memorex list of verified burners for this media. Yet, the discs fail every time. You were right. I should've just taken the blue pill and listened to you.

Other Thoughts: I suppose you could say I have learned a very valuable lesson. That lesson would be when our community says that these discs are bad, believe them. You guys aren't wasting your time posting a review because you have nothing better to do with your time.

Who knows? Maybe Memorex will see that we are all having issues with this media and make the needed changes for the next batch. Then again, it's that same blind hope that got me in this mess to begin with.

Now off to buy another brand.....

Hey, anyone want to buy a spindle of coasters from me?? I'll sell them to you real cheap!!!

4 out of 5 eggsgood media

Pros: burn faster than rated speed

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: have only burned 1 disk but was able to burn at 10x without a hitch, only gave 4 stars because I have to wait & see if disk is still readable down the road

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Media

Pros: I could get them to burn if I instructed the burner to run at 4x

Cons: These failed when allowing imgburn to write data at default (fastest) speed. Once I figured out to burn as slow as possible, they would burn but would verify as slow as 1x which is worrisome; I do not expect these to last very long or be reliable. I was trying to save a buck, you get what you pay for, buyer beware.

Other Thoughts: Manufacturer ID on these is RITEK-BR3-000 - keep away from these.

1 out of 5 eggsThe High Price of Tuition

Pros: Clean appearance, tasteful design. I didn't wait long to get them; even though I ordered from a different vendor, these were shipped from Newegg, who did their usual fine job in getting the product on my doorstep quickly.

Cons: Just because they look nice and got here quickly doesn't make them good discs. Using a Lite-On burner with current firmware, I have a 100% fail rate with these. Now, lest you think I'm doing something wrong, I've had great success burning other brands. I've even had good luck with the 4X Memorex discs. But these 6X discs... stink. At 4X, at 6X--doesn't matter. Reading errors on verification If--IF--they complete the burn using ImgBurn. Disc after disc. In fact, I see ImgBurn's reporting another bad burn as I type this. That's eight out of eight. I've got 22 more to go, but I'm thinking that it's time to use them for target practice.

Other Thoughts: 100% fail rate so far, kids. Let that sink in a moment before clicking "add to cart." I've written off my expense as tuition--the price I paid to learn never to order these again. Please don't pay tuition to learn the same lesson as me when I just gave you an education for free.

1 out of 5 eggsNothing but coasters

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap. 7 tries, 7 coasters. Always fails to verify in the 85-95% range. I've had zero issues with other media, but this media is just garbage.
