Details:

Lesson number one in optical media burning - learned the hard way by many who lost their precious data they thought safe - is to never believe that just because your favourite burning software says that a disc has been 'successfully burned', you actually have a good quality disc on your hands! This is far from being true, particularly nowadays when media quality is becoming a bit of a challenge, and even good brand names compromise on quality beyond acceptable limits. Unfortunately this media is one such example...

The only way of getting an accurate enough picture of how good a disc/burn actually is (at the consumer level / using consumer level tools), is to carry out a proper 'quality scan' using one of the BluRay drives capable of performing such scans (typically drives based on the Mediatek chipset which offer this capability). Those interested in such things can find lots of useful info at MyCE.

These TDK discs use a PHILIPR04 MID ... and they are of very poor quality. It is a pity that TDK have chosen not to use their own high quality TDKBLDRBB-000 MID and went instead for the cheaper and lower quality PHILIPR04 (Media ID). Unfortunately this choice of cheaper MID really shows. Some PHILIPR04 MID discs can be quite good (I had good experience with some KODAK branded 4x BD-R media in the past), but this new batch used by TDK are complete rubbish. They might as well be qualified as factory rejects which should go straight to the bin!

I've got several Blu-Ray burners and plenty of Blu-Ray burning experience, and I tested this media on all of them at both 4x and 2x (hoping for better quality).

Great Product. I have used TDK for many years and never had a coaster (DVD & Blu-Ray). Thats why I ignored the bad reviews and purchased this 10pk and I'm glad I did. Burnt all 10 no problems at all. A great price for a great product. I believe a lot of the bad reviews are made by newbies to the art of blu-ray burning its not as simple as DVD and a lot of failures are due to poor choices of software and hardware not the TDK disks.

As optical media goes, there is good media, ok, and bad. This sits firmly in the OK arena. I haven't had a disk failure, or where data hasn't been read back from the disc. However having scanned these disks after a burn I wouldn't put my faith they will last for a long time. They have VERY high LDC (BD equivalent of CD's C1 and DVD PIE) at about 100 for the first 20GB, then exceeding 2000 on the outer 5GB. The BIS (C2 or PIF) follows a similar trend. Before you ask, all burnt on ASUS leading Blu-Ray burners.

So, like I say although these figures are poor, the discs do work. If you're creating home movies or discs to transfer files then they're fine as they are readable. Creating for a back-up? Spend the money and get better discs.

Side note - This trend has followed throughout all of TDK's brands, including DVD's and CD's.

I would normally have ordered BD-R 25GB Blank Blu-ray discs from either Infiniti or Verbatim. However Infiniti is no longer available, though heavens know why, as was Verbatim. I then made the drastic mistake of ordering TDK!! From the Cakebox of 25 Discs - 14 were coasters,they wouldn't even format. The remaining 11 discs appear to be okay. I have given this product one star, purely because 11 discs worked. I have now reverted to Panasonic, who are slightly more expensive - but totally reliable - from the 100 odd discs used there hasn't been a failure. I say, pay the extra and get Panasonic!!

This is the first time I have had a Blu-ray recorder, and I was not sure which discs to buy for it. So not wanting to spend a fortune on discs.( just in case) After looking at the reviews, and seeing someone who had the same model Panasonic system as myself. I decided to give these a go. I have only used one so far, but it worked a dream. I will try some more, and if I get the same results, then I will be over the moon.
One thing to report, the packet said 135 mins in HD, which is just over 2 hrs of recording. But on my machine I get about 6 hrs of HD content, recording HD programs from TV on a 25GB disc. The program I recorded onto this first disc was over 4 hrs long, and came out perfectly. I was even able to give it menus, with a little movie on the side. Looking at the disc, I have nowhere near used the full capacity of this disc, so where 135 mins comes from makes no sense.

These discs offer great value for money, I bought my Freesat Panasonic Blu-Ray recorder when they first came out and I have tried several makes of discs.
Contrary to other reviews I have found these TDK BD-R discs to be VERY reliable in my recorder, and having used about 25 of them so far I may have had 1 or 2 that have failed to burn correctly, I think these may have been because of finger prints or other marks on the disc that I had not cleaned off, as It seems to me that ALL Blu-Ray DISCS are more critical of surface debris than DVD's possibly because of the density of the data being written.
I have bought my previous discs from Maplins at £9.99 (50% off) but these are even better value. It does not matter to me where they are made as long as they are genuine TDK's, mine were manufactured in Taiwan, and the Imation connection is not a problem either as I have used there discs in my custom built computer systems for many years with no problems.
In conclusion these are great value for money discs, but like all disc recording Make Sure The Whole Surface Of The Disc Is Clean Before Writing To It, I use a Spectacle Cleaning Cloth for this, and only burn up to the maximum rate of the disc.
Don't rely on Nero DiscSpeed to check ANY Disc for quality as it does not read the disc at 1x rate, so ALL discs DVD or Blu-ray that show up as "Damaged / Unreadable often work perfectly OK in a normal DVD / Blu-Ray Player.
