    bought bulkpack cdr media what can i say but to put it mildly


    THESE ARE A BUNCH OF CRAP

    still got about 78 left as i wont use them now
    disks are aparently rated at 48 speed but nero picks them up at all different max speeds some even as low as 12 speed
    if i successfully write a disc it only works in the drive it was written on, i dont know if i have a bad batch but i wont be using them again. As for bigpockets own media ive had 2 lots of 100 cdrs and they were great so stick with them if i were u :lesson:


    regards

    Good old Bulkpaq... another batch... yet another dye :)

    Personally I stay clear of Bulkpaq as I find their reliability too inconsistent, even on a Ritek dye. If they're Princo then avoid like the plague. These however are Prodisc ?!?!

    I'd keep an eye on that thread if I were you and wait for a few other opinions before buying or play safe and just go for a trusted brand that uses Ritek as they've been proven time and time again

    Cheap isn't alway cheerful
