I know people think they are crap but I bought a 100pk 3 or 4 months ago (to make audiodiscs) & they work a lot better than CMC (which I'll never buy anymore) in both my Plextor DVD driove & my TDK VeloCD drive. Not buying another GQ spindle after these last 60 discs are gone since I like Taiyo Yuden a whole lot better. However it seems I can burn audio up to 32x (I use 16x now) on these cheap discs without any skipping or static noise problems in my CD players. CMC? Couldn't burn audio above 8x without the skipping & static which is one reason I quit using CMC. Anybody else have good luck burning GQ CDR's besides me?
