I have to disagree. Although Ritek is fully capable of producing reliable and high quality results, time and time again they have also shown that they are equally interested in flooding the market with 'B' 'C' 'D' and lower grade discs.
There has been a continued swing in the industry to move away from supporting Ritek. You will see this in the huge movement of larger brand names away from using Ritek as their OEM. Both Maxell and Memorex have moved away from Ritek, and I believe Samsung has also switched or will be switching as well. Other brands have also been having issues, and I know that Ritek is becoming very concerned with this sudden loss of big customers in the last 6 months. Not only this, but many Ritek dealers, such as myself, have become rather upset at the inconsistancy of quality between shipments of product, and have largly cut back, or removed altogether the Ritek product line.
It should be very interesting to see if Ritek decides to clean up their act, or continue to increase production and sales of crap quality media!
