Hi quite new to the dvd burning, do you think Verbatim are any good??

Cheers

New here too, but have burned a buttload of both CDRs and DVD-Rs. I'm glad everyone here has had such great luck with Ritek DVD-Rs, I used to use them exclusively and never had problems burning them. But two years down the road I've had quite a number go unplayable, which is a dissappointment. These days most of the techie sites seem to recommend Taio Yuden as best, with Verbatim a close second. I've tried both and they seem fine, we'll see how they hold up. In fact, Verbatims are the only ones recommended for dual-layer movie burns . . . I had tried other DLs from TDK and Fuji with crap (and those damned things are expensive) results. I've just burned my first two dual layer Verbatims and they seem fine.

Just my experience, your milage may very. tongue.gif

Go here when buying DVD media,


find out what media code the DVD's are using and then use this information to search on that specific media code, then check the user comments if the media is good or not. You can even use following link,



to search for media that is the most compatible with your burner or player.

Spot on Friend, I've been using Ritek for two years no coasters 100% return

If you live in the Uk try www.rambox.co.uk for some good deals. They have a good website. I use them because I only live about two mile away from their shop, but they have a good online service

Taiyo Uden TY02 discs are the absolute best you can buy for dvd5 and Verbatim 2.4x for dvd9 discs.

They will provide the best burn and give the best longevity of any brand.

Use dvdinfo pro to scan your burns and you will see the results.

The best UK supplier is www.svp.co.uk

Top notch service.

I used to think that Ritek was the best. I've burned a couple of hundred G04 and G05 printable. Not a single one of them was playable after maybe a year. The last G05s that I had wouldn't burn above 4X without pink spots appearing on the disc and they would be unplayable. These were burned on several Pioneer, Lite-On and BenQ burners with the latest firmware. This would only happen with the printable discs and on a lesser amount with +R Riteks. These Riteks were all bought from either Meritline or Supermediastore and were genuine. I have switched to TY and Verbatim and no more problems. I sent an email to Ritek asking them about this probably about a year ago and so far there has been no response. They must be aware of this problem that many people are having and just don't care, I suppose. I have seen many people complain about this on other forums.

I also use Ritek with G05 dye, printable for my DVD-R. Theyre reliable and cheap, i currently pay 13.50 per 100. Would be interested to see what other people pay for these.

If you want the best? DVD5 Taio Yuden & DVD 9 Verbatim

But I cant go past Ritek G05 for value & reliability! thumbup.gif thumbup.gif
