New G04? Darker purple bottom? –
Hi all, I posted these questions on a different thread, but there is a lot of information, so I decided to start a new thread. Hope this is ok procedure :O Here it is:

Above, what does ".. are not Ridata branded.. are unbranded.." mean? Is this not desireable for some reason? Because they do mention that they are "true ritek media." And as I hear, darker bottoms, such as these, are easier for the ps2 to read? But what about this "frosted top" business?! Ah, all these terms :P
Also, I've seen some Ritek being sold that have the tag "Ritek/RiData." What exactly does this mean?
For instance, www.banzaicracker.com/catalog is selling:
"Ritek/RiDATA DVD-R 4.7GB, 1X/2X, $1.30ea., 100-Pack
Thanks, appreciated :O
Oh, one more thing.. let's say with the "new G04s" I mentioned , and the a06, is it just a matter of trial and error to determine which burning speed (2x or 4x) is "better?" I've read some posts about reliablility of various burning speeds, I'm just curious if this particular combo is any different
Sorry for all the questions, but answers to any/all of them would be great
