    How are the quality, reliability and compability of these media:

    - Datawrite 8x DVD-r MCC/CMC printable
    (The Data write 8x Printable disc uses CMC’s Mitsubishi dye.)
    - BULKPAQ 8x Printable DVD-r(MCC Dye)
    (This new disc from Bulkpaq utilises the same dye as the High end Verbatim Products)?

    It states that Bulkpaq use the same dye as Verbatim. Is it as good as Verbatim?

    Between these two which one shall I buy? Which is better? Has anyone use them?

    Thanks.

     ... The dye type is only part of the manufacturing process ... Some pretty bad media is made with good dye types ... Just as important as the dye type, is how well the dye is applied ... How evenly the dye is applied .. especially towards the edges is critical ... At the edge of the disc, the surface is moving much faster ... If the dye hasn't been applied properly you will run into problems as you near the end of your recording ... This seems to be one of the main problems people encounter with low grade media (along with dye flaking) ...
