Excellent Value! NOTE (August 2012): If you got to this review while browsing reviews on other media (Amazon CDs, for example), this review is on the DVD+R product. For some reason, some DVD reviews show up under CD products as well.Now, onto the review! There isn’t a whole lot you can say about a particular brand of DVD+R media. If it works and there are no unusual issues, one is pretty much the same as another.That said, there are two things that will keep me buying the AmazonBasics DVDs. One is the price….the price is lower than other brands, and still a similar price even when the other brands are on sale. Factor in Amazon free shipping and sales tax considerations and their price is excellent.The other reason I like these is the shipping. The double boxing and packing ensured the media got to me safely.As far as performance, that is driven mostly by your PC hardware and burner. I have used about 80 of these in the past year or two to store…

Dependable 4X I have had 100% success burning both data and video formats with this media at 4X using:Sony Optiarc AD-7170A (firmware version 1.O4 supports this media at 4X, 6X, 8X, 12X, 16X)Plextor PX-708A (firmware 1.11 supports this media at 2.4X, 4X, 8X)LG GSA-T11N (firmware A104 supports this media at 4X only but can do 8X with other comparable media)NEC ND-3500AG (firmware 2.TB supports this media at 2.4X, 4X but can do 8X with other comparable media)As you can see, some of my older drives won’t support faster than 4X with this media. I’m a little surprised that my oldest (the Plextor) would support 8X, but I haven’t bothered to try anything faster than 4X on any drive because I’m rarely in that much of a hurry.My burns are generally more than 90% of disc capacity so I am almost always using most of the recordable surface. My success criteria is not just an error-free burn; I have verified several discs by reading them at max speed (on a…

No problems. Decent price. Decent quality I have nothing bad to say about these discs. I’ve burned plenty of videos to watch on my particularly finicky Sony DVD player and they have played just fine. In addition the $25 Samsung dual-layer burner I got from NewEgg has had no problem burning these at full 16x speed.ImgBurn reports these as UME02 discs.Other than that, these discs also include a protective coating on the label side of the disc to protect the foil. So you don’t have to expect any of the foil chipping off like you do on some of the really cheap discs.There’s really not much else to say. The price is right. They work well and they’re fairly durable.
