I got a pack of 50 Imation CDR's. What's the best brand to get? I want to exchange it.
I like Verbatim or Sony myself, although my last pack of colorful Verbatim ones I had a lot of coasters... This could also be caused by my shitty shitty burner though.
I've used Imation, Memorex, Sony, Office Depot, and probably half a dozen other brands and never noticed any difference.
well i wont buy them if they cant burn 40x or more. brand name? i could give a shit. if it burns im happy
Anything manufactured by Taiyo Yuden. (tdk certified for example)
Most cdr's can be burned onto without any problems nowadays, but what you want to look for is longevity and compatibility. Some are of really cheap quality and you can literally split them in half with your finger nails. Some only last a year. Some can't be read in some video game consoles, cd players, dvd players. But this also depends on how it was burned and the speed.
basically what crontab said..i used to work down at compusa and they used to sell these cheap ass cdr's, you can see right through them easily, so when you buy cds make sure you dont get anything like that. i like tdk, imation, sony, maxwell theyre all good and last long from my experince
Go over to www.cdrlabs.com they have revies of cd writers and what media worked best in them
yeah, Taiyo Yuden are the best..
look for any CD-R that's made in Japan. Some TDK, some Sony, and Fujifilm. Luckily, you can find Fujifilm CD-Rs on sale very frequently
