maxell dvd-R pack of 50 from



Guest do 3 for price of 2 at 8.99
has anyone got a cheaper website please for these disks
they are superb


Why are they "Superb"? How many have you recorded on? How many different DVD players have you tried to replay them on?What DVDR do you record them on??

I ask because I have found this brand to be about 50% only - I now stick to Verbatim


ibuy lots as i record a lot of tv for my brother in australia
ive done about 150 discs over the years not one failure
i use a dvd ex85 and my brother has a sony
where do u buy yours from

so its 150 for £26, not 150 for £17 as your initial post would suggest
(just putting this to clarify for folks reading who may get confused like i sometimes do :D)

These Maxell are the absolute worst disks I have used in
my set-up - most probably a bad batch but I threw away
about 40 of them from a tub of 50.
Would not finalise on either of my PC rewriters (Pioneer
107 and 111) - did finalise in my Pioneer 5100 standalone
recorder though??
My Panasonic eh50 actually locked up and got the dreaded
self check - threw them after that - just my tuppence worth
but will never by Maxell again.

The Panasonic DVD-R 1~16x using Taiyo Yuden TYG03 dye work fine in my old three year old machines and also the later models.

The offer at £19-56 for a spindle of 100 discs is still available at APRMEDIA and they are listed as being in stock. Unfortunately tho', unlike, the carriage isn't free.

In the link it states that the top colour of these Panasonic discs is silver. That is incorrect. They are a matt orange and quite easy to write on. I use a BIC CD marker.
