Advantages Loads of CDRs on a stick (50 of them)
Disadvantages No cases, no protection, no inlay cards
So it was my wedding anniversary last weekend and my friend - who always remembers my anniversary but I never remember hers - bought me some Maxell CD-Rs. So, as is the Ciao protocol, I thought I'd tell you about them.WHAT DOES THE PRODUCT BLURB SAY?
WHAT CAN YOU PUT ON IT?
CD-Rs are the "once-only" discs and therefore it's probably not a good idea to put anything "non-permanent" on there, like pictures or documents, but is best for music. In fact, their product blurb only mentions music and not data. Note: if you want to keep adding and deleting data on CD format, go with the other type: the CD-RW.
Going back to their blurb the familiar old phrase "high quality recording" is evident. Maxell, along with TDK - and others - have been using this phrase since time immemorial to push blank tapes, videos and DATs. They also quote the use of this "revolutionary" recording coating but they don't go into any details on the packaging about the make up of this special sheen.
DOES IT LIKE MY BURNERS?
Yes. I use ANVSoft's ANVBurner and a freebie from the net, Burn4Free and neither of these appear to hinder the quality or progress of the CD-R. I have used about five of the fifty CDs so far and only one did a track not copy correctly but that was due to me running a couple of applications oiin the background whilst burning, and was therefore nothing to do with the product.
I'm a bit of a CDR perfectionist and would really have liked some jewel cases with this product to protection the discs from dirt and dust. However, 50 CDRs equates to space for around 1000 tracks so I'm can't complain!
Thanks for reading.Wayne
