    I purchased a 100 pack of Ridata x4 DVD+R from Newegg when they had the $10.00 rebate. I think it was on 8/15/04. They were in random stacking order a mix of RICHOJPN01 (x4) and RITEK R03 (x8) Newegg number-DVD+R RIDATA DRD+474-RDCB100 100PK
    49 Ricoh
    51 Ritek

    The 4X RiDATA -R will be G04 and the 4X RiDATA +R will be RICOHJPNR01.

    I'vew bought my fair share of both flavors from newegg and they've all ID'ed as such :)

    I went to new egg, and can't find a stack of 100 G04's. Can someone link me to a good buy? Thanks

    I didn't see any 100 spindles either but you can always buy two 50's :)

    I bought my most recent 100 spindle of G04 from http://www.rima.com . It's a great shop to deal with.

    Last question.... What is the diffrence in the red pack vs the purple pack. Looks like new egg has them both. Also it seems like most people in here reccomend the G04's and the feed back in new egg is only 2 people but the feedback on the ritek +r's is like 160 good reviews.

    Thanks for your help!

    I've used both the ritek dvd-r (media code ritekg04) and the ritek dvd+r (media code ricohjpnr01 02). I prefer the +r because 1) I can set the booktype to dvd-rom 2) lite-on's prefer dvd+r media. The quality of the g04's is starting to vary a little from batch to batch. Make sure you buy ridata (branded) and you should be ok.

    I just received from Newegg.com the 100 pack of Ritek 4x dvd+r. No coasters so far. My next purchase will be the Ritek 8x media. I have two questions.

    Would the Ritek 8x media have the same quality as the Ritek 4x?

    It was mentioned that -R and -RW is and always will be a more popular format. More manufactured dvd players will accept the -r format. Is this true?
