Well you can get a F1 and try the 24x disk they have with it. Thats the only one I'v seen so far.

ProDisc and Ritek do very well in LiteON burners. CMCs often have a BLUR of less then 2%, avoid DST (BLUR of 26%+)

Thanks Laffin and Dolphin. I'll take that under consideration. However, could you also recommend some good quality CD-RW media, even if it is expensive.

Thanks

I've had no problems with CMC RWs, I've had problems with Princo RWs (as in, they peel and flake after a couple uses...we had a very unhappy customer.....) So, anything but Princo is my opinion :)

You are not still trying to tell us that CMC are good quality are you because they are one of the worst CD's I have every used and I am not on my own with that opinion of them most of our Moderators and Experienced users keep well away from them and that must be why you are on our Forum so you can get rid of them !!!

Laffin: ouch, sounds like you had a bad day or something, please don't take it out on me. This is a forum, and I have an opinion. I also happen to have experience. I may be new here, but I've been burning CD for about 5 years now, and I've been using CMCs for most of that time. and I have never, and I mean NEVER had a problem with their CD-RWs, have you ever tried a CMC CD-RW??? they're alot better then Princo, I can tell you that, at least they don't start flaking after a few uses. are CMCs good quality? well, I think that's up to each person and their burner to decide. They ARE cheaper then Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui, and in most cases good enough for the task. And as manager of a CD-media store, I tell you, I could not in good conscience recommend Taiyo Yuden over CMC to a person who'd be only keeping the CD for a week, or only filling it up a quarter of the way (since CMCs only have problems after 65min or so *IF* they do). I know the CDs I sell, and I PERSONALLY use CMC very often. I don't need to "get rid of them" as they sell rather well. SO if you have a beef with me, or my opinion, take it to me in e-mail, not in the forum.

I don't have a beef with you ( Yet ) and as for your Orders to take it to e-mail, not in the forum. I think you have forgotten who is the Moderator here it is Deffinetly not You in case you have forgotten !!! We are here to give Good Accurate Information so just do a search on Our Forum and the Internet for CMC and see what most people think of them
And just because you have loads of CMC'S to sell and can't get rid of them there is no reason to start throwing your Teddies out of your Pram !!!
And as for you saying " I could not in good conscience recommend Taiyo Yuden over CMC to a person who'd be only keeping the CD for a week, or only filling it up a quarter of the way (since CMCs only have problems after 65min or so "
So what you are saying is that you reccomend CMC as long as you only keep the CD no longer than a week. Well I think that has said everything for me and tells everyone what you really think of them. And I will Openly say that CMC are no where near as good quality as Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui and I would like to bet your So called Store dosen't even stock Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui !!!
And to get back to the Topic Roman was asking " could you also recommend some good quality CD-RW media, even if it is expensive."
And you recommend CMC yet again even though Roman has asking for good quality CDRW and he is not bothered about the price and the best around at the moment are Ricoh and the Verbatim he is asking for Quality not Quantity !!!

Gentlemen:

I appreciate the lively discussion. I never expected a heated debate, but I thank you both for the information. Unfortunately Dolphinuis_Rex, I agree wholeheartedly with Laffin Assassin on the issue of how good CMC media are. I've purused the Internet and some other forums such as CD Freaks and Free CDR Recording Software's, and they generally say the same thing about the CMC media. Its not ranked very high in terms of its quality. Taiyo Yuden media is ranked very high.

The reason for asking my questions here is because I always seem to get a decent response from knowledgeable people in a reasonable amount of time.

With that said, I'll be more specific with what I am doing with this media as well. I want to backup my entire computer system using this CD-RW media in case, god forbid, it crashes and locks me out or becomes virus ridden. That's why I asked about quality the 2nd time. I want these CD-RW's to last, so in case I have to reinstall my system say in 6 months, I won't have worry if the media I used to backup my system is still functional.

I've learned that even if you have a hard drive backup of your system, its always good to have a 2nd backup just in case the inevitable happens.

Again, I am very appreciative of the feedback.

Hi Again Roman Tribune
You are welcome on the Forum anytime and we always try to help as much as we can !!!
As for you backing the hard-drive up I personally use Norton Antivirus and to backup the h/d I use Norton Ghost and make a backup on to a spare hard-drive that is always installed but it always dissabled untill I need to either back the hard-drive up or get an Image from it to restore the main Drive and it works very well without any problems !!!
I hope this Helps !!!

Ok, here's a question then: Has anybody actually seen a CD-RW comparason? all the "official" testing I've seen has been on CD-Rs.

No CD-RW comparing yet however some life experience. Which is most times even better than a review.
To answer the question short:
Any CD-RW made by Mitsubishi Chemicals is good and there really the best cd-rw's out there.
If you want to be sure that you get the real thing then buy Verbatim Datalife Plus CD-RW's or Mitsubishi CD-RW's.

If you want a longer answer: Then check for a longer posting from my hand with my experience of different brands here:
http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6344

At this moment some of the my Mitsubishi are used for more then 80 rewritings. And still no problems and zero damaged sectors in NERO SPEED. Only one of the twenty disc's which I use is damaged so far and this was because of a bad tray mechanism. The tray hit the disc very hard on the outside of the disc.You can clearly see a scratch.
Still the part is just damaged according to NERO. This last one is now used for music compilations which will not use the full 80 minutes.

Now I will try to talk some magazines to do a cd-rw test and I think that there is a very big change that one of these magazines will do it.
