In my local stores I found new media (new to me) it's labeled as e3Works. But the only official-looking website I found for them doesn't list any DVD media, only CD.

So I'm hoping that someone here can shed some light on this media. (possibly manufactuer) as well as provide general opinion on it. The reason I don't want to just pass it by is because it comes in a spanking looking packaging (I use spanking in it's techincal sense) which doesn't seem like something a 2 bit operation company would bother to do.

I was gonna buy 1 sample, but 1st they don't sell it in singles, and 2nd (and this is a biggie) I'm not currently equiped with a DVD-Writer

linky if someone wants to see it

E3 Works is sort of a budget brand. They buy a lot of cheap stuff for their OEM jobs, and their CD-Rs are CRAP! Currently, most of E3Works DVDRs seem to be Optodisc, which are good in some burners, and useless in others. Pioneer burners and hacked NEC 2500a's seem to work fairly well with them. Don't even bother trying if you own a Plextor. LG drives can be touch and go, but the results should be useable.

Hope that helps!

I had a 200 pack of them of cd-r's. They were 48x certified according to the manufacturer. The first 100 burnt "ok," but my Benq would not recognize them at all, and the LiteOn 52246S with the latest firmware update limited them to 16x burn speed. The second hundred from the same pack seem to be defective thus far. I would stay away from this brands media.

Their CD-Rs are often made by Postech.... quite an unstable CD-R manufacturer. E3works DVDRs *can* be much better... but like I said, it depends on your drive (and firmware).

I have a 50 pack of their CD-R discs which I got on freebate from OfficeMax. They are Ritek discs. I have never had a problem with these, and they work great with the Yamaha DiscT@2 because of their color.

They may be one of those labels who buys from the lowest bidder, so depending on lot, the actual manufacturer may change.

e3works is a Canadian company.  There products are reliable and safe to purchase.  I've had no problems and if you do need customer support they have a website www.e3works.com .  I like supporting small Canadian businesses instead of the big corporate businesses.
