    These things have got to be the worst worst worst media I've ever used.

    They actually work ok for light duty use but like a lot of cheap discs they don't burn well near the end.
    Since better quality discs are available for the same price then it doesn't make sense to use them. Prodiscs are good quality for about 50 cents each.
    Riteks are in the 70 cent range.

    I agree 200%. The -R's are pure garbage. I have made about 50 coasters with them but Microcenter did let me exchange them for a new pack of +R's which I have never made a coaster with.
