Need Right Burner For Success 11/09/2009
This review is from: memorex 8.5GB 8X DVD+R DL 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model 05732
These discs are cheap and with the right burner -- but only with the right burner -- produce good quality burns with maybe one verification error out of 30-50, and reasonable PIE/PIF profiles on burn scan. Pretty much equivalent to the fabled Verbatim. I tried my best with several Sony/NEC/Optiarc burners and, at best, only got to around 50% burn success with these, even using some custom Liggy/Dee firmware and hand-crafting some Memorex-specific burn strategies. Then I read a review on Newegg that mentioned using a Samsung SH-S223Q with these. $25 later (thanks Newegg) and the Optiarc is relegated to read-only duties. The Samsung S223Q works great, and I've no reason to suspect that the Samsung's other S223 models wouldn't use equally successful strategies. People who swear by the Verbatim are welcome to go on paying almost twice as much per disc. I'll stick with the Memorex-Samsung combo, thanks.
Well, their price has remained constant for the last year or so now, and given that you can get other discs with the same RICOHJPN-D01-067 ADIP for less, Memorex ought to be dropping the price for a 50-pack into the $25 dollar range...
