    Has anyone had the experience with generic COMP USA DVD-Rs? I just purchased them and haven't opened the box... they were pretty darn cheap for a measly $7 bucks for $10. I just want to know if anyone here has tried them out or had some good/bad experiences because I could always return them. Oh yeah, is there anyone that knows a website that sells Riteks in ten packs. Thanks.

    My brother-in-law bought me a stack for my b-day. Haven't had 1 coaster yet. I've been burning them at 2x speed with Nero 5x on my Memorex Duel X-1.

    I've tried a batch of DVD+Rs and haven't had any problems yet. Not sure about the longevity though.

    Comp USA DVD's are Princo DVD's they read 1x because they only Guarntee at 1x but actually burn at 2x

    .70 cents each is pretty steep for Princo DVD-R. I got some for .20 cents each and they work great. You paid too much.

    I also picked up a ten pack of CompUSA DVD-R's for $7.99. I have had mixed results with these, as I have had some copies come out great, but out of the first 8 I have burned, 3 of them have had stuttering video towards the end of the movie. I backed up "Open Range" on 2 seperate discs, and one had the stuttering video, where as the other did not experience that problem. I wish CompUSA sold Ritek's, as I would love to get my hands on some.
