    Hi
    Just joined today
    Hope some may be able to help.
    I'm tempted to buy a large amount of arita purple top dvd-r 4x and also the dvd+ 4x dvd.
    Having sampled the arita green top [sorry for the vague descriptions] with total satisfaction from my customers, I was wondering how these discs fair in comparison.
    I understand they are classed as "C" grade, and would welcome any help, or comments good or bad prior to purchasing.
    Thanks In Advance
    Sandra

    C = SHIT!
    B = CRAP
    A = GOOD

    Don't bother unless you wanna make a coaster tower or sell frisbies.

    Ricoh only puts its name on +R media.
    And they're made by Ritek anyway...

    I recently bought Arita purples 25 for £25 which seemed and excellent price until using them .Out of the 25 I have made 15 coasters out of 20 and even the 5 that have worked get alittle pixelated towards the end !! I have also used imation disks with alot more sucess (£2 each) . I haven't found a coaster free make yet and suspect I never will but the Imation seems to give me an 8 out of 10 sucess rate.Using Nero6 and DVD shrink

    No need to be spending £2 a disc, especially for rubbish like the CMC-made imations, you can get Ritek G04-dye discs or MCC Verbatim discs for less than what your paying for those imations. Both are good discs with v.low dud disc percentages.
