    Default Are these any good?

    Disc ID: RITEK-R03-02

    I got them at Wal-Mart earlier (30 pack of 8x Memorexes)

    the ritek R03's are some of their best, or at least used to be
    being memorex would make me suspicious

    They are the stuff I use and have had tremendous experience with. Stay away from the G05s - known bad production.

    Don't suppose it matters, but I buy the Ritek branded product.

    Well, just proves that Memorex is good as well. Everyone head out to Wal-Mart and buy them! They are 15 bucks for a 30 pack - these are the good Memorexes. (I know some of them are bad - these aren't)
    Here is if you want to buy them online: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4064386
    It is a 50-pack online for 30 bucks. The more the merrier

    No, but they Ritek's, so are the 50-pack of Memorexes that I finised off. I had no coasters in that 50 pack. So, I am sure that these are good too, just these are R03's and the other was G03.

    Bestbuy just had Verbatim DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs on sale for 14.99 for 50 packs in my area.

    Hmmm. Are those better than Ritek's? Could you give me a BestBuy.com link? I was just at Best Buy yesterday looking at the cameras, and they did not have any 50 packs under 20 dollars. And the $20 ones were crap.

    go to http://www.bestbuy.com/ and then weekly ad then type in (sale over/sold out) for zip and advance to page 24 - 25 verbatims are on page 24.

    That's the weekly ad for 12/25.

    I've also found that when I go looking at OfficeMax's weekly ads and find good deals on discs, when I go to their store to pick some up, they don't always have them out, you have to ask them to get them for you. OfficeMax had a great deal on some Verbatim Double layer discs a month back that they were hiding on their top shelf out of view. Great for business huh.

    I can't vouch for the latest manuacturing run, but certainly runs in the middle of last year that I came across were terrific. As I said, not a coaster.

    His are probably old stock, it all the new stuff(16x) they are overramping
    production on that seems to be going to heck in handbasket.

    My R03's from over a year ago still play fine and scan good.

    From what seems to be the norm, 8x media is going out of production.

    I've had great success with Staples DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone, but I've had no issues with them. I picked up a couple 50 packs for 9.99 each. When I play them on my standalone DVD player to view them on my 47" HDTV, I can't tell the difference between them and Verbatims. But if I do one of them scans through Neros Disc Quality test, WOW, I can't believe they even play because they only come out with a quality score of 18 to 23. The Verbatims come out on top with scores always above 95. Just thought I'd share my results.
