I don't really burn these discs on the computer, preferring to use them as 'everyday' discs for 'giveaways' and general use. I had also previously bought 2x50 packs when they were under a tenner each direct from Amazon so the value at that time was tremendous. Why they have suddenly jumped up to £ 15, £ 18 and £ 21 odd at today's prices (21.08.07) I can only put down to popularity I suppose. Anyway I have used them on a Daewoo, Funai and on Panasonic player/recorders and have yet to have a single `coaster' at all. In fact had they been at the original price they were when I first got them I would have ordered another 2-3 packs today. (which is why I'm currently at this page) As it is they are now a little bit expensive for my `everyday' usage. So this time I will go for the Emtec Dvd-R as sold on this site. (these discs currently a gift @ £ 7.93x50discs and good reviews) Remains to be seen if those are any good.

For burning on the external Dvd recorders previously indicated, these discs are just fine and we had no problems with them at all. Can't really speak of PC burning. Pity that price wise they are just a little bit OTT now as they are up there with Verbatim which is my particular favourite. All IMHO of coarse.

100 of these discs were, at the time of purchase, cheaper than 100 of Tesco's own brand. I have not had any problems with anything I've burned so as far as I'm concerned the quality's excellent and I'd buy them again.

High quality and at a great price. It is amazing how the price on DVDs has come down. These are in use by our IT department, and they are a critical bunch! Memorex remains one of my favourite brands.

I have recently had to do a lot of backing up and have used 400 of these discs with
not a single disk faulty. Agree about the packaging though if you like to keep discs
in the tube this is not ideal.

A while ago I posted a blistering review about this product, because I have used these DVD-R now for more than 3 years.

Unfortunately, and to my great annoyance, the last 100-disk spindle I bought here turned out to be incompatible with my Sony standalone DVD recorder. The recorder correctly loaded and formatted the disks, but either stopped halfway through a dubbing or crashed altogether in other cases, and even when it had fully dubbed a DVD and finalised it, could not reload the DVD which it had just completed dubbing.

This was so puzzling and disappointing for me, because I had switched to Memorex, after trying and failing to find any consistency with most other disk brands, including TDK and Verbatim. I very rarely get angry, but this time I did. So, I wrote to the Amazon reseller Incubus Bargains, and being such a great and caring company, they immediately arranged a full refund, saying that this batch of DVDs may be defective, asked me to dispose them in recycling, and even suggested the brands of replacements that I could try. Thanks to them and Amazon, now I have purchased a Sony DVD-R Ref.100DMR47BSP, 100-disk spindle, which proved to be just 3 pounds more, because of a current discount. I have not yet used these Sony DVD-R disks, but I hope they would work on 'all existing DVD player-recorders' as they advertise.

Because of the many problems I have experienced in using DVDs in the past, I did a lot of research on the reliability of DVD media, and found that cheapest disks can be very unreliable, even if they appear to work first. If you are archiving large amounts of backups as I do, I strongly recommend not to use cheap disks like this Memorex brand, because they have a number of inconsistencies against the international standards.

Bought my disks from APR media they arrived well packed and in great condition.

I've been using these blank Memorex DVD's for years, dubbing TV programmes to disk on a variety of hard drive DVD recorders and for backing up data on my PC.

Out of all the hundreds of disks used, I have had only a handful of failures and these were caused by an old glitchy DVD recorder. My current Sony DVD recorder appears to love these discs as it has not produced a single failure.

I shall continue to buy these discs because personally I think they're great.

The delivery time was quick enough at 4 days and as yet I haven't had any recordings fail. I've used 11 discs so far with no problems. I find that if you need to finalize them its better to do it with a cold machine (ie. one you,ve just switched on). Otherwise the finalization process can sometimes wipe the disc. The only reason I,ve given 4 stars instead of 5 is because the non recording side of the disc is slightly patterned making witing on this side a bit aukward. A blank area would have been better.

Along with other customers, I couldn't make these discs work. My trusty NEC writer has never had an issue with any other manufacturer, but wouldn't work with these.
