Shoptech is not selling Ritek G04 any more. where can i find some at?
like JLebowski said, meritline.com
Maxell dvd-r's 4x 50 pks are all ritek go4's as far as I can tell. Just the 50's so far.
just the 50's?
Yes. I got them at office depot on sale for $19.95 a pack. So far all the ones in the 50 packs are go4's.
Hey guinnyss, Office depot has 50 packs of maxell's for $35 and yet another spindle free.100 discs for $35.sale ends today.I was surprised how many they had left yesterday,I only need 100 plus-ricohjpn-01
Bigwop stated their yellow tops were ritek-g04's. I bought some a few weeks ago in the 25 packs that were also ritek-go4.I thought I had my system down for maxell's till I ran into those ritek's,they were still pretty darn good.
Here is what you want to look for, All those maxell -4x yellowtops have pretty much the same "shrink" wrapper, The discs with ritek will have a yellow sticker stating "made in taiwan" covering the spot that says made in Japan. Just look for that yellow sticker.
Those yellowtops are also produced by mxl-rg02 and ty-g01. Those are the codes when you find the Japanese yellowtops. I prefer them.
Hey bigwop or anybody else,that local office depot had 100 pack spindles of maxell +8x- Purple tops, and 100 packs of maxell -8x Orange tops for about $70-$80, have you heard of these? These were all made in Japan.Looks like what I have been reading about, maxell is getting rid of their 4x medis in favor of 8x.
I think most manufactures are doing away with the 4x for 8x. Cuz that what Shoptech did with the 4x G04's.
Hey guinnyss, I prefer the 4x. Some of that 8x media is letting me get 16x if I leave my burns set on max.Way too fast for my comfort level. All those -4x maxell's will only let me burn 4x,which I prefer.
A great deal at Newegg, 100 pack of Ritek 8X DVD+R's for $26.00 after a $12.00 mail-in-rebate. And yes, I know that these discs are G05's.
Here's the link: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewprodu...67&ATT=CD+DVD+R+RW+Media&CMP=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r
I agree with you "saugmon" i still have a pack of 50 DVD-R G05's that i didn't open as yet due to the first 50 i used out of the 100 pack. So 4x all the way.
Yes this is a great deal and correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't G05 refer to the dvd-r and not the +r?
yeah i think so, i have never used the 8x media so i wouldn't know.
