Important Notice - Bad Media - Uk
I just saw this news from another forum, and quote it directly here, credit to HomerJ
A large batch of B Grade 4x DVD-R Media has been sold into the UK Market via a media distributor in Edinburgh. They are well known for their business practices and previous activities with DVD Media which contained an illegal x2 speed rating code copied fromTDK without permission - these discs are still available under the Datasafe, Bulkpaq and Datawrite branding.
This B Grade product originated in the Far East and was supposed to be destroyed, it did not make it to the incinerator and was intercepted without Ritek's permission. Unfortunately this product may be sold as an A Grade product and is understood that it may be available at a price of between ?.60 and?.85p.
As a B graded product there will be an extremely large reject rate (up to60%). Unlike CDR Media the gamble of B graded media is one that is not worth
taking, B Grade DVD-R is media which has failed during production, it is NOT media that has randomly failed post-production testing (like CD-R).
Keep your eyes open people.
